The Dolby Cinema screen here is 2.39:1 and measures approximately 54.3' x 22.7'

Holy crap they were UNprepared for Avengers this weekend imo. Lines out the door. One old lady with one scanner marking tickets. 2-3 food registers open that took 5 min or longer each. JESUS this theater needs some help. I LEGIT saw in the mens room a toilet with a rag stuffed down it to make it overflow, on Friday at 5pm. Like WTF. gross.

Popcorn cold. Food that takes a while too to cook and get because the workers just don’t give a f. PLEASE AMC help this theater. I know this weekend was an exceptionally bad one but this is just bad overall imo.

OH. And the ticket woman kept saying “pull your tickets up” or “send them to your friend to get in” but the theater has ZERO CELL SERVICE. IDK how but it’s a complete dead zone when you get in. I kept trying to get my rewards open for my cold popcorn but i gave up and just paid full price. zero cell service here

Probably the BEST Dolby Cinema I’ve been to and I’ve tried a few. They’ve completely fixed every issue I think other Dolby’s have. This is my new favorite one. Has anyone else tried it yet?

During the Black Friday shooting at the mall this building was used as a shelter for the evacuees before it closed until the day after it happened.

Dolby cinema now at this theater.

Dunkirk is playing here in liemax this weekend.

Earlier today inside the mall there was a robbery at a jewelry store according to 1010 WINS. The mall was evacuated but everybody came in safely.

IMAX here is great. Huge auditorium with fantastic sound. IMAX sound system here is better than NYC Lincoln Square IMAX.

The Legacy Loews exterior signage will be removed and replaced by the AMC Brand –

I hope they do not remodel the David Rockwell designed lobby to the current AMC look, with it’s red circle lights, circle carpeting etc. Loews always had a very nice lobby design from the mid nineties on, but I always felt like they skimped out on the actual auditoriums themselves, that definitely could use some new seating, carpeting, wall curtains, side light fixtures. Also maybe they could also put a AMC MacGuffins bar where the Loews Club was originally supposed to be on the Upper Mezzanine Level.

this theater needs a remodel, badly. With every other local big theater getting something new, it’s strange this one is looked over.

This opened on August 17th, 2001. Its grand opening ad can be found in the photo section for this cinema.

I think with AMC’s expansion of Dolby, this could be a future dolby cinema theater. It’s got imax. Rockaway and Clifton are also other contendors imo.

Wouldn’t mind newer seats though like they got in amc west orange with leather reclining but I’m dreaming :P

I hope so. This complex recently became the Mills at Jersey Gardens under new ownership by Simon Property Group.

Went here with my wife last night to see “What If”. (Dont bother, it stunk} But the expeirience was nice. I hope AMC doesnt remodel this one and leaves the black maskings on the screens, something they just got done removing in the mountainside remodel.

Since I last spoke, this theatre once again has competition from neighboring Newark.

moviebuff82 on April 3, 2012 at 3:35 pm

all screens now digital.

The Loews Jersey Gardens was designed by the New York City-based architectural firm David Rockwell & Associates.

avatar 3d directors cut coming this weekend in liemax and 3d.

moviebuff82 on May 30, 2010 at 6:45 am

That’s great news, Slimshady. That’s means more 3-D and 2-D movies along with the liemax.

geniusdj2 on May 21, 2010 at 11:03 am

going all digital in june

speaking of facebook, jersey gardens has its own page… I first noticed it when I was browsing through Lucky magazine. Back when Jersey Gardens 20 opened, there were two theaters in Newark. Now there’s one owned independently and thriving in inner Newark. The thing I like about this theater is the outside, which hasn’t changed since AMC took over in 2006. Also, how large is the mini-Imax at Jersey Gardens?
