Saw the art of self defense in theater #13. The poor framing made the subtitles hard to read and the picture was a bit dim. The sound was good though.

Saw the lion king in auditorium #1 and the presentation was great. Too bad the bathrooms were messy.

The original Lion King played at this theater first in 35mm and dolby 5.1 during a holiday reissue in 1994, then was reissued in 70mm imax with the added morning report scene in 2002 and redrawn animation (that version was on the DVD when the film debuted on that format the following year) and a remixed soundtrack and again in 2011 with a 3d conversion that made the original the highest grossing 2d cartoon of all time, a record of which still stands today when stacked up with other classics like Snow White, which was the most reissued Disney movie of all time from 1937 until the early 90s, when it hit home video for the first time in a restored version. The new Lion King is breaking records at the box office and will last for two months. It might come back during the holidays if its nominated for Oscars like the original movie.

This was the first movie theater in Paramus to open in the area, followed by the mall theater, then the Route 4 and 17 theaters, then cinema 35, and currently AMC. Looks like regal might not have a theater in Paramus Park at all.

When this theater opened it was the first in Paramus to show art house fare and the first ever indoor movie theater in Paramus, NJ.

When it opened, it was the second art house cinema to open in Paramus, with the Bergen Mall having shown art films for awhile before it closed down in the early 90s.

sadly my local AMC in Rockaway will show the 1.90:1 version in both 3d for one showtime only and the rest in regular 2d. I guess the sound mix will be the same for imax as Dolby as both use multiple channels.

There’s a major power outage on the upper west side that is causing moviegoers to get out of the building due to a transformer fire.

Saw two movies the past few days…saw Crawl in theater #4 and enjoyed it. Presentation was very film like due to the movie being shot on Kodak film then transferred to digital. Rocketman had a bit of dim projection since auditorium #13 was also being used for 3d movies, but the sound was amazing in 7.1!!! Still plenty of seats available for Lion King remake, so i’ll wait until two days before opening day to see it.

Since it’s own by AMC, have they cropped the image of the full frame used for full frame dolby movies like they do in rockaway, nj?

Remember when the Lincoln Square was the go to place to see an indie flick in addition to the regular box office fare? Nowadays more megaplexes can show art house films as AMC has done recently with their program, which has gone under several name changes, from AMC Select to AMC Independent to AMC Artisan Films.

A segment of the Today show that aired today was shot at this venue featuring an interview with Jerry Seinfeld, who frequently uses the Beacon for stand up comedies. 30 years ago this week, Seinfeld made its debut on NBC and soon became a hit.

Sounds kinda like with how AMC treats their screens in bigger multiplexes these days…unless if its dolby uncropped, prime, reald 3d and imax.
