Possibly the nearest cinema to New York City offering “Tenet,” which reportedly did “fair” business nationally in its holiday weekend debut. Article in The New York Times can be read here

Just got back from a true classic at Hoboken Cinemas: “Psycho”. They’ve been showing lots of great stuff every Saturday and Sunday morning. Too bad there were only 3 other people in the audience besides me.

Don’t you hate it when movie theatres guarantee that all of the movies showing will be great?

The main auditorium is beautiful, much bigger than I expected after seeing the rather small lobby. Sound system worked great too. If only the movie itself wasn’t such a dud (“2012”).

the ad is also found on clearview’s hoboken website too.

Nice. As we learned here in Chicago, it was never about what the meters could earn. It’s about the tickets/fines that will be generated. Evidenced in the article’s “Master Plan” of the area being renamed a “commercial zone”.

That’s a way to structure the ticket fines to be higher in that “zone” than other zones. In Chicago it’s called “Central Business District”. Even though such areas includes massive residential clusters. Most living there long before the overdevelopment and the new applied “designation”.

They are $50 tickets…for a meter. Miss the payment deadline and it doubles. Amass three unpaid tickets (down from 5), and it’s the boot.
Oh, and they are 2 hour maximum. So seeing a movie and making it back to the car in time would be a stretch.
The fact that Hoboken’s parking manager already factored in they’d be 4 hour meters, implys they always expected to add them specifically around the theater. Guess that was a gift, or maybe a way to appease esidents who would be forced to use them too.

I wonder if the proposed meters were ever a factor in the minds of the theater’s developers beforehand? It’s kind of mentioned by one of the council members.

Theater tickets should be the only ones to worry about.

I’m looking forward to attending this theater. Hoboken has been too long without one.

Three of the five auditoriums have stadium seating and digital projection, and each auditorium has digital sound.

Leave it to Clearview, who is one of two chains I know of building new theaters that aren’t all stadium seating (the other is Bow Tie Cinemas – which refuses to in their flagship Criterion Cinemas, much to the annoyance of my West Hartford friends). As for digital – I’m not a fan – I think films should be seen as intended, I would have preferred to see Paranormal Activity projected digitally for example, but other films without the “digital” look should be shown on film when possible (granted not every film/distributer has the budget to make a print). The parties benefiting from digital are theater owners who can build automated boothless theaters that can be controlled by remote control, not only has that day come but it’s here – look at the new builds Premier Theaters are bragging about on their website.

Sure digital 3-D is “the future” – fine -but I’m sick of this HD/video is better mentality that has not just taken over at the multiplex, but even in film education with universities dropping 16MM in favor of shinny new HD equipment that’s obsolete in 4 years.

According to someone I know who was at the theatre last week, only 1 screen has digital projection, and only 2 screens are stadium. 35MM is installed in each screen. Need to get our facts right before posting. I know everyone wants to see digital rule, but believe me, it will be a long time before that happens.
