List of AMC Movie theaters closed in NYC and NJ

List of AMC Movie theaters closed in NYC and NJ

A good way to escape the madness from Hurricane Sandy and the streets of NYC and NJ this weekend is getting out of the house and catching a flick. Escapism for many is the order of the day and we believe a good movie will take care of many of those cabin fever woes.  

Several of AMC’s theatres remain closed due to the lack of power and because public transportation is still suspended in many areas in New York and New Jersey, many of you will be prevented from getting to the theatres. The Eastern Operations team is continuing to assess the damages as locations are slowly coming back online. In the meantime below are the theaters that are CLOSED. All other theaters not included are OPEN!

We will continue to update this page as well as provide information on our Facebook and Twitter channels.

If you have any questions about whether your theatre is currently closed, please call the Guest Services line at your local AMC movie theatre.

Details of ‘Men in Black 3’ Premiere and After Party!

Details of 'Men in Black 3' Premiere and After Party!

Wednesday night, had the pleasure of attending the ‘Men in Black 3’ New York Premiere, and what could very well be described as the best after party of 2012 and perhaps the best party – period – in the Hollywood industry in years.

The red carpet was held at the Ziegfeld theater in Manhattan, considered by this editor to be the best theater in New York. The entire cast showed up, including helmer Barry Sonnenfeld and Latino rapper Pitbull, who raps the theme song of the film. Will Smith, with his large cast of fellow actors, thanked the “Big Apple” for their support and introduced the 3D presentation.

After the screening, we were transported on a shuttle bus to the post premiere party aboard the aircraft carrier Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, which served all types od delicious food and drinks. Moreover, there were fireworks provided by the Grucci group that lasted about 25 minutes, which then gave way to, not one, but two musical performances with rappers Pitbull, and Will Smith and his family, including a reunion with DJ Jazzy Jeff. Pitbull played all his hits like International Love and the MIB3 theme song, and Smith went old school with songs like Summertime and the original and catchy MIB track.

Celebrities like boy band sensation One Direction, Spike Lee, Ethan Cohen and Michael Shannon were on hand to catch the performances of what was an unforgettable night.

I don’t know how much Sony spent putting this night together, but whatever it was, this one is going into the – “Remember that MIB3 party 20 years ago? Nothing like it!” -memory banks.

To get a sense of what we experienced, check out below some of the photographs and videos we took at the premiere and after party. Just insane!

Review: Monty Alexander: Music of Sinatra & King Cole

Review: Monty Alexander: Music of Sinatra & King Cole

With a stunning backdrop of the Manhattan Skyline, 67 year old pianist Monty Alexander took center stage Saturday night hoping to wind back the clock and turn Jazz at Lincoln Center into Jilly’s Saloon, a famed Rat Pack hangout of the 1960s.

Accompanied by a group of masterful musicians and vocalists, Alexander paid tribute to his heroes Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole in a cabaret-like show with American standards such as “Come Fly With Me”, “My Kind of Town” and “L-O-V-E.” 

For the role of Old Blue Eyes, Alexander enlisted 22 year-old baritone James DeFrances while tapping charismatic jazz artist Allan Harris to play the “King.” Both traded classics and made for a “swinging session,” but the real delight here was the show’s supporting cast.

Blues guitarist Russell Malone’s haunting solo rendition of “Where or When” might have easily stolen the show. It was the one interpretation of the night that seemed entirely heartfelt and evocative of the nostalgia Alexander was looking to capture with this concert series. Also impressive was percussionist Bobby Thomas Jr., who seemed to hypnotize the audience every time he was given the spotlight.

Alexander’s appreciation for the music of Sinatra and Cole is sincere, and for jazz lovers the tunes are timeless and a joy to experience live – especially by such a talented bunch. But somewhere a note is missed when trying to strike the right tone.

While DeFrances holds his own as a singer, he underwhelms as a performer – never quite looking comfortable with the rest of the group. That, is not how we all remember the Chairman of the Board. Thankfully, Harris picks up the slack with his exuberance and Alexander’s anecdotes serve as a reminder that he himself is a direct link to the Rat Pack era.
