Some of the auditoriums in this new space are okay, but there is at least one room that is barely bigger than a utility closet and seemed to be the place I kept getting stuck in any time I went to see a movie there. Therefore I gave up on it and started going elsewhere, much preferring the AMC New Brunswick on Route 1. Haven’t been there in four years, so maybe things have changed.

I worked as a projectionist for megamovies i’ve got to give them credit and say they gave it a 100% effort in making sure that each operator provided a perfect presentation. In the larger auditoriums seeing a movie is a great experiance.

Starplex has upgraded the auditoriums to digital projection and luxury seats (black leather recliners) – capacity has been greatly reduced, tonight we saw The Internship in an auditorium with 32 seats!

The lay out is pretty interesting – 1-4 on one side, on the other: 5-8 ahead and 9-13 to the right, comprising the old “Movies at Brunswick Square” subdivision of the original GCC. The theater still has a few GCC touches including the steel “curtains” in the lobby of the 9-13 side, along with a GCC style concession stand. Not sure if they have a picture window screen (I didn’t want to peep around too much) – but the bathrooms are original GCC in that wing… with much smaller doors and stalls. The letter (black on a white door) for the men’s room is still vintage GCC as well. Interesting complex!

The Ben & Jerry’s is gone, however the Nathins in the lobby is still there along with tables and arcade games. The D-BOX seats were removed with the addition of the leather recliners. Also to Starplex’s credit they lowered prices ($8.50 for full price adult evening admission). I’m happy they kept a few GCC things in tact for us cinema geeks!
