Contagion: The IMAX Experience 
Opens September 9
Giveaway Tix are for September 8th, 2011

Recently, I had the chance to attend a screening of Hubble 3D at the new IMAX at the AMC  Clifton Commons 16, Clifton, NJ. I would be fibbing if I did not say that I had a wonderful experience. The IMAX at Clifton Commons is a perfect location for the Newark area. The AMC theater is already wonderful and with this addition, it has only gotten better.
I am so looking forward to the official opening of The IMAX Experience on September 9, 2011 with a special ribbon cutting ceremony by the Mayor and some added surprises. Not to mention seeing CONTAGION rated PG13! I’m sure it will be just one of many movies my family and I will be enjoying at the new IMAX Experience at Clifton Commons!

 AMC Theatres (AMC), a leading theatrical exhibition and entertainment company, announced that guests visiting AMC Clifton Commons 16 can now enjoy The IMAX Experience® from IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX; TSX: IMX), when CONTAGION: The IMAX Experience opens September 9.
The IMAX Experience combines crystal-clear images, powerful digital sound and customized theatre geometry to create a uniquely immersive movie experience. The IMAX® theatre at this location has been custom-designed for use in a multiplex theatre. To maximize the field of view in the modified auditorium, the screen was replaced with a larger, slightly curved and specially treated IMAX screen positioned closer to the audience.
IMAX’s digital projection system combines two digital projectors with IMAX’s proprietary image enhancer and custom lenses to create an image with greater clarity, brightness and contrast. The images on screen are complemented by IMAX’s latest sound system, which features its proprietary loudspeaker technology and uncompressed digital sound. This sound system has ten times more dynamic range, cuts down on distortion and provides a sound quality that feels more immersive, especially with the added acoustic paneling that absorbs sound and removes echo.
The addition of IMAX at AMC Clifton Commons 16 continues AMC’s dedication to offering the best and broadest menu of entertainment choices for guests seeking an unparalleled experience. Guests at AMC Clifton Commons 16 will take in the world’s most immersive cinematic experience when CONTAGION: The IMAX Experience opens September 9. The movie has been digitally re-mastered into IMAX’s format exclusively for presentation in the IMAX auditorium.
The IMAX theatre at AMC Clifton Commons 16 will feature Hollywood’s biggest movies that have been digitally re-mastered into IMAX’s format.
Other upcoming Hollywood movies to be released in IMAX format include: REAL STEEL (October 7), PUSS In BOOTS (November 4), HAPPY FEET 2 (November 18), MISSION IMPOSSIBLE (December 16) and THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN (December 28).

IMAX at AMC Clifton Commons 16

FOX Presents NEW GIRL -Sept. 20, 2011 My Sneak Peek!

New Girl
on FOX
September 20, 2011
The other night I was lucky enough to attend the New York New Girl Party, thanks to BoysRuleOurWorld . It was hosted at the beautiful Hudson Terrace located on the Hudson River, NYC.
New Girl debuts Sept. 20th on Fox network. The lucky attendees to the party did not have to wait. As we sipped on drinks of choice and delicious delicacies, we were treated to a sneak peek of New Girl, starring Zooey Deschanel as Jess Day. Playing an adorable geeky hilarious character who is going through a rough breakup(as we all have at one point or another), she moves in with three male roommates and the fun begins! 
Nick, played by Jake Johnson, Schmidt, played by Max Greenfield and Coach, played by Damon Wayan’s Jr. really sew up the cast into a laugh after laugh comedy. Jess also does have a best friend (what would life be without one) Cece, (Hannah Simone).
The complex, yet simple mix of these five characters had me intrigued with anticipation of what would happen next. This single-camera comedy shot by Liz Meriwether has just the right mix of comedy and compassion to keep us all coming back for more. I personally cannot wait to see what the upcoming season has to bring as we are introduced to New Girl.
