What’s the latest on the building? Next year will mark the 30th anniversary of the opening of this theater, which turned around Loews' fortunes and became one of the leaders in building big multiplexes with fewer screens that were big in size and were surrounded by many speakers. The lobby was very spacious for its time.

I was there this past week—the Meadow 6 has almost been completely demolished. Only part of the shell of theater #1 was still standing. The facade is covered with a banner announcing a new Marriott hotel. By the end of this month, the Meadow 6 will be no more.

Ah, the memories… I was one of the managers at the Loews Meadow Six. I still have that weird little key that turns on the overhead emergency house lights.

ET didn’t even play here until February 18 of 1983 in 70mm Dolby Stereo, which was the first movie to be shown that way. When was SDDS installed?

SDDS was installed back in 1993. I honestly thought it was introduced a couple years later than that, but I went on YouTube and Google that it began its first use before the start of the film “Last Action Hero”.

Here’s a link to a test film that projectionists would use to soundcheck auditoriums with SDDS… and here’s one for Dolby…

Any grand opening ads? I read on new york magazine that this theater showed ET in 35mm during the summer of 1982 along with Tron in Dolby Stereo.

This opened on June 25th, 1982. Grand opening ad in the photo section.

The two Loews theatres closed and didn’t get renovated because the Secaucus Kerasotes Showplace Icon 14 open very close in 2009
