AMC Garden State 16 Interior

This 16-screen megaplex opened on May 25, 2007. The theater has DLP projection in at least one auditorium and two auditoria with rear window captioning.

The theater is the successor to the old Route 4 tenplex. Unlike that now closed theater, the new AMC Garden State 16 is attached to Garden State Plaza, the busiest mall in New Jersey.

This theater was originally supposed to be a Loews, but that changed (just like the Rockaway location) when AMC bought LCE. By 2023 it was operating with 15-screens.

JB1981, I am not there on thursday. I am in Rahway running 35MM Saturday Night Fever. The picture and sound was great. We did not watch as we had to make sure the print fed off the shipping reel ok. The person who did watch it said its powerful.

So I guess I got to see markp in the booth when I did my Barbenheimer on Saturday. Glad there is still a 70mm screen in Paramus, which was the closest place for it to where I grew up. Couldn’t believe how immense the Dolby Cinema screen is for a flat movie. Fifty feet tall? Sixty? Huge.

Right now more accurately a 15 screen, since the VR area built in the Theatre 1 space doesn’t appear to be a thing any more,

Oppenheimer has been showing in 70mm in auditorium 15, with about 290 seats and a nice large screen that appears to be about 35 feet wide. For those interested, auditorium 5 sits about 485 and has a huge screen that appears to be 60 feet wide.

2 top notch, experienced projectionists projected almost 4 miles of film each time, including using a platter, of Oppenheimer, in regular 70mm (not IMAX) daily, starting July 21, last day Sept 21. A total of 224 shows. 4 shows Friday thru Sunday, 3 shows the other days. First 6 weeks the times were 8:45 AM, 12:45 PM, 4:45 PM, 8:45 PM. And 12:30 PM 4:30 PM. 8:30 PM. Final 3 weeks were 9:30 AM, 1:15 PM, 5:00 PM 8:45 PM. And Noon, 4:00 PM 8:00 PM. Some days Mark Joseph Pusillo was the projectionist. Other days Rich Rettino.
