Flagship Cinemas opens theater in Mechanicsburg

MECHANICSBURG, PA — The the former AMC Hampden Center 8 cnema has been given an extensive makeover and is re-opening as the latest theater in the Flagship Cinema chain. Two of the auditoriums are premium screens, with vibrators built into leather seats that activate when explosions occur during the film being shown.

Last weekend, however, Flagship Cinemas brought movies back to the weekend routine of Hampden Township residents. Flagship Cinemas, a regionally owned movie theater company, has refurbished the former AMC Hampden Center 8 theater and opened its doors last week to moviegoers.

“We have not selected a grand opening date yet, but we obtained occupancy last Friday,” said Paul Wenger, vice president of Flagship Cinemas. “We considered it a soft opening — essentially whoever decided to drive by and see us open showed up. We’ll be officially working on a marketing campaign for this weekend.”

Well I hope they did something with the HVAC. Back when it was still operating under the AMC banner one of the auditoriums had such a bad condensate leak that it became a small lake any time it was turned on. I am sure it has not helped that the place has been vacant and unheated for over a year.
