probably not. I believe there’s a member who verifies seating, I’m sure he’ll submit an update when he/his? schedule allows.

If this place has upgraded to recliners, I doubt it still has 4,900 seats.

the theater is now called amc garden state plaza 16. there’s also a dreamscape vr near the cinema that opened awhile ago.

It could play in 70MM, (cinema 15). Its one of the 3 theatres I run 70MM at. However, I have not heard from Warner Bros about this theatre, or the other 2 in NYC that I cover.

Could tenet play in 70mm here once they reopen in mid july?

what amc should do when they reopen is to improve the regular projectors. Replace the seats. And keep prices stable.

Well whatever the technical cause was, the image was obviously too dark, a common problem at AMC. And Regal.

There’s no “bulb” to turn down in a Laser projector.

Went to see Terminator in laser Imax. It was dark the entire movie including previews. Could see the picture but the bulb was obviously turned down. I went to lobby and told someone, but nothing happened. I hear theaters do this to save on the bulb. I also went to AMC Wayne and as the lights went down, a mouse came running past me. I left. A lousy weekend at AMC theaters!

@Moviebuff why? Rockaway is really far away and doesn’t have IMAX laser

JB1981 on October 12, 2019 at 6:43 am

Is the Paramus IMAX screen much larger than the one in New Brunswick. New Brunswick is closer to me… I’d like to check out Laser at some point. Wish it was coming to the Monmouth Mall AMC. Maybe next year. Trying to scope out the best place to see The Rise of Skywalker before tickets go on sale soon.

how is it? Can’t wait for rockaway to have it as well as clifton commons as most of the small imax projectors are being replaced with the laser PQ and AQ as well as seating to be on par with Dolby and other premium formats. How is the pricing compared to the previous imax in paramus?

After three months of renovations (65 days, to be exact), the upgraded Laser IMAX auditorium with AMC Signature Plush Rocker seating opened here today.

Please update, theatre open May 25, 2007

Hopefully rockaway gets it too as well as others in the area that have had the 2k imax projectors for nearly 10 years as that system is being retired. I remember it came out during the release of The Dark Knight for theatres that couldn’t afford a real imax projector and convert the screen into a larger screen with no masking issues at all and pumped up surround sound that has inspired copycats like Dolby Cinema and others.

The official websites for New Brunswick 18 and Cherry Hill 24 have confirmed that their IMAX theaters are being upgraded to Laser. Evidence is mounting that Garden State 16 will receive the same treatment!

B1G_Mac on July 22, 2019 at 1:48 pm

The IMAX theater at this location closed today for renovations and will re-open in a couple of months. They are presumably upgrading to laser projection and new seating. I guess the plan is to be up and running by October 4th (Joker’s release date) at the latest, if it will be shown in 70mm here.

moviebuff82 on July 18, 2019 at 4:41 pm

70mm joker confirmed for opening weekend per markp.

Good grief. I couldn’t see North by Northwest a while ago because of “technical difficulties…”

RHETT52 on July 15, 2019 at 10:05 am

TCM screening of EASY RIDER, CANCELLED 4PM Sunday show. They couldn’t get the movie to play. AMC never gets the Fathom screenings right!

moviebuff82 on June 24, 2019 at 12:29 pm

Do they crop the aspect ratio even with flat movies? The rockaway location seems to do that recently. How about the sharpness and audio?

moviebuff82 on April 23, 2019 at 5:28 pm

how is dolby compared to the rockaway and clifton locations?

Dolby cinema 3d debuts next week with battle angel Alita which will bomb at the box office.
