ALL Philadelphia area multiplexes & megaplexes now on cinematreasures.org

posted by HowardBHaas on October 5, 2007 at 4:45 am

In recent weeks, I’ve added 20 Philadelphia area multiplexes and megaplexes to cinematreasures.org so that with others previously added, EVERY Philadelphia area open multiplex and megaplex is now part of this website! Fortunately, “cinema treasures” doesn’t ignore current movie theaters. The founders cinematreasures.org wisely recognize that we should document and discuss today’s movie theaters.

Below is a list of the Philadelphia area multiplexes and megaplexes that I’ve recently added. None are “historic” but each is loved by many moviegoers.

PHILADELPHIA

UA Riverview Plaza 17, UA Main Street 6, Pearl 7

PHILADELPHIA SUBURBS

AMC Plymouth Meeting 12, Regal Plymouth Meeting 10, United Artists King of Prussia 16 and IMAX, Regal Marketplace at Oaks 24, UA East Whiteland 9, Regal Downingtown Stadium 16, Regal Richland Crossing 12, Regal Edgmont Square 10, United Artists 69th Street 9, AMC Granite Run 8, AMC Marple 10, AMC Marlton 8, Regal Burlington 20, United Artists Washington Township 14, Regal Cross Keys 12, AMC Deptford Mall 6 and AMC Deptford 8.

  • Editor’s Note: Thanks for all your help with that, Howard. We try to get every theater of note up on the site. We like to think that where the story starts and stops on classic theaters is just an opinion.*

I’m curious as to what the website leaders will reply. Since they may not realize what it is, I will clarify that the Franklin Institute is a downtown science museum, and very famous locally. The IMAX often shows science docus, not just commercial movie blockbusters.

I don’t know if all IMAX theaters will qualify to be included on this site.

Ah, here’s on in the London Science Museum, so they are ok to be added here. Maybe sometime soon, I will add it.

If members are allowed to put in lousy shoebox multiplexes, why not an IMAX? It seems whatever the favorite theater is a member favorite gets added. Oh well. Well done, Howard. You deserve at least a free movie pass and popcorn. :)

Thanks, JordarMovieFan.
I was reminded by somebody who sees movies there that the Cinemark 16 used to be in the Philadelphia Inquirer movie clock (which I used in looking for theaters) and was still showing movies but no longer in the movie clock (the ads). So, I added it and the Atco which also dropped out of the Inq but still shows movies:

Cinemark 16:
/theaters/21732/

Atco:
/theaters/21737/

Was the Forum Theatre ever a film venue of note in Philadelphia? I passed by it when I was in town on business a couple of months ago and didn’t see it posted on this site…

Since opening in 1975, it has only served one purpose, that of showing porn.
