For the first time in months, there are signs of life at the movie theater in Headquarters Plaza.
Less than 24 hours after officially taking over, general manager Dayon Saunders and a crew have been taking stock of the current theater and preparing it for a re-opening.
"We look to be three weeks away or so," Saunders said. "And the theater will essentially open as is until the renovations start."
According to officials at AMC, renovations planned for the 10-screen theater include plush power
recliners, a revamped concession area that includes hot foods such as
mozzarella sticks, chicken tenders, French fries and pizza, Coca-Cola
Freestyle machines and state-of-the-art presentation equipment, such as
new movie screens, new speakers and 100 percent digital projectors. The
improvements will be completed in phases, allowing the theater to remain
open during the work.
Saunders, who is a Newark resident was commuting to an AMC location in the Bronx up until starting in Morristown on Monday.
