Good for George Lucas, bad for the cinema companies. BTW, with the Loews/AMC merger, it will install more THX-certified auditoriums in all of its theatre. THey should do it at the Wayne and the new Rockaway theatre that will open in 2006.

moviebuff82 commented about Clairidge on Jun 26, 2005 at 2:02 am

I went to this theatre when I used to live in Clifton to see “Life is Beautiful” since it didn’t play in Clifton or Wayne, and it was a decent experience. So-so sound, good picture, and fresh popcorn. I only went there once, when independent films were only playing at theatres like the Clairidge. Nowadays, you can see them at your local multiplex and on DVD, where most of the revenue is right now in an era where box office is down and DVD sales are up! Yet the Clairidge is still open and plays an eclectic mix of films, some of which are on two or three screens (ala the much bigger multiplexes!).

moviebuff82 commented about AMC, Loews Cineplex To Merge! on Jun 23, 2005 at 1:02 am

The last time I went to an AMC theatre was the former Rockaway movie theatre that’s now a best buy. I only saw one movie there, Exit Wounds, and the sound and picture were pretty good as well as the seats. Too bad it closed. Now that the new AMC/Loews Rockaway theatre is coming, it better be good. Compared to the Loews, it wasn’t that crowded. As for the deal, they should lower Loews' prices since their outrageously more expensive ($9.50+ for prime time tickets) than other chains in my neck of the woods.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC, Loews Cineplex To Merge! on Jun 22, 2005 at 1:05 am

Some people might confuse the AMC brand with the AMC movie channel or the old AMC car company, but the acquisition of Loews will make them the name for big-screen entertainment. Imagine the widespread installation of THX in all their theatres, since some of those AMC theatres were General Cinemas, including Clifton Commons.

moviebuff82 commented about Reading Cinemas Manville 12-Plex on Jun 21, 2005 at 1:11 pm

I’ve been to that theatre once to see 50 first dates. Decent surround sound, big picture, humongous place for a 12-plex with a massive restroom for men and girls.

Didn’t Amazing Savings just close their doors on all their stores, including the closest one in Ledgewood?

moviebuff82 commented about AMC, Loews Cineplex To Merge! on Jun 21, 2005 at 1:08 pm

When I used to live in Clifton, there were two main theatres, the General Cinema (now AMC) Clifton Commons 16 and the Loews Wayne 14. Now that the merger will be complete, will both of these houses remain open? It would be scary if the chains were an AMC Wayne 14 and an AMC Clifton Commons 16, not to mention the return of AMC to Rockaway after four years of closing the old theatre (along with the current Loews theatre, the East Hanover location). I wonder if they’re going to change the theme song (Thank you for coming to Loews) into a musical tune like AMC? That would be weird.

Now that Loews Cineplex and AMC will merge during the time period when the new 16-plex is constructed and completed, will things change a bit? This and the new Rockaway 16 plex will be big investments for the new AMC-Loews chain.

moviebuff82 commented about Amboy Cinemas Closes Temporarily on Jun 15, 2005 at 1:40 pm

That is a good thing. The Amboy Cinemas is one of the oldest multiplexes in New Jersey, and with its closing, it is the first major multiplex to be closed. Any more multiplexes being closed in the near future in New Jersey?

moviebuff82 commented about Queen Anne Theatre on Jun 14, 2005 at 9:15 am

Is it that theatre that’s located on top of the Route 80/95 intersection in the RIdgefield/Bogota area? I used to see that old run down theatre that said Queen Anne Theatre on its side in faded out print over the streets that lead to Route 80/95 on the way to the GWB.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 Tenplex on Jun 13, 2005 at 9:13 am

They should revamp the Tenplex as a state-of-the-art movie theatre with all digital sound in all auditoriums, stadium seating, bigger screens, and a museum showing the history of the theatre.

moviebuff82 commented about Allwood Cinemas 6 on Jun 12, 2005 at 10:48 am

I remember going to the Allwood Sixplex a lot when I was young. When it was bought out by Clearview, it had a hometown feel to it rather than the chintzy Clifton Commons and the tall Wayne megaplex that first drew moviegoers away from the small Passaic county sixplex. I can’t believe that ticket prices in that theatre are cheaper than the other big theatres that clearview owns, such as those in Succasunna, Mansfield, and even the Ziegfeld theatre, the most famous Clearview cinema of them all. The theatre was easy to walk to from my old parent’s house in Clifton (Clifton Blvd.) rather than go all the way to Clifton Commons or the old Quad (which thankfully was closed). As for that Hoffman guy, he did a good job renovating all those popular cinemas in North Jersey with state-of-the-art sound, good picture, good carpeting, and seats. Now only if he could make stadium seating available to all Clearview Cinemas that don’t have it (i.e., older theatres like the Washington Township). Yet, CLearview CInemas is the most popular franchise in the New York Metro Area and in New Jersey.

The theatre where I see the most movies in Succasunna is Auditorium #5. What sound format and seating capacity does this popular theatre have?

moviebuff82 commented about Amboy Multiplex Cinemas on Jun 12, 2005 at 6:44 am

That’s some good news. Which National Amusements cinema draws the most people in the country? I think it’s the Edgewater since they have the digital projection.

Any word on whether they will reopen the movie theatre? I’ve never been to this one since I live in Northern New Jersey but go past it on the Garden State Parkway on the way to the shore; was it to Central Jersey what the famous Route 4 Tenplex was to Northern New Jersey?

‘Nuff, said, member. One theatre you didn’t talk about was a 12-plex in Manville owned by Reading Cinemas; that theatre is pretty good and located near Bridgewater, where it’s competing against the AMC Bridgewater Commons 7. Not all of the latest movies play at the 12-plex, just at the 7-plex.

As of this weekend, this theatre has been closed indefinitely. It will be an eyesore for many commuters to come. Who knows? Maybe it will be a shopping center with all that space or an expansion of Route 9.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 Tenplex on Jun 2, 2005 at 4:58 pm

Oh, I know already. 16, just like the new Rockaway theatre that will open next spring in 2006. When will this new theatre open in Paramus?

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 Tenplex on Jun 2, 2005 at 1:09 pm

THe last time I went to this theatre was nearly 5 years ago, when I went to see “X-Men” and it was crowded. The sound was allright and the picture OK, but the seats were uncomfortable although the movie was enjoyable. It’s time that the Route 4 Tenplex gets a makeover or soon this theatre could be extinct. Other movies I saw at this theatre were “Congo”, and “Outside Providence” as a rough cut before it was released theatrically to poor box office. The last I heard about the tenplex was from my aunt who went to see “Monster-In-Law” with a few friends, one of whose husband works as a security guard (excellent job) at the movie theatre. It’s good that this popular multiplex is one of the safest theatres around.

moviebuff82 commented about Cinepolis Mansfield on Jun 2, 2005 at 4:10 am

I’ve been to one of their theaters (in South Plainfield), and they show the movie later than they usually do due to showtimes that start the movie rather than the previews (kinda like Loews is doing right now); I think Clearview is doing a good job showing previews and commercials first and then the movie 15 minutes later. But the advent of digital home theatre and videogames has lured people away from these theatres, don’t you think?

moviebuff82 commented about Cinepolis Mansfield on May 31, 2005 at 6:01 pm

They’re small compared to what is in the Regal cinema in Phillisburg (which I might add in the near future), which I hear has bigger screens and all of them have stadium seating.

It’s too bad that unlike the company’s famous Ziegfeld Theatre, it doesn’t have digital projection, which is too bad. I saw the last harry potter movie and my parents sat near the big screen while I was at one of the stadium-style seats; my stepmom and dad thought it was too bright and blurry. Will digital projection come to this theatre?

Wow! I didn’t know that one of the blockbusters I used to go to was an adult movie theatre!

Well, it was too little, too late….a drugstore came to town and it was Walgreens that took over the remains of the old theatre.
