It was after the fire at Moorestown Mall when UA renovated the former RKO Stanley Warner-RKO Century Warner-Eric Plaza Moorestown Twin into a 7-plex. I don’t think the original interior survived the renovations.

The lobby area of the Ellis Theatre still stands across the street from SEPTA’s Frankford Transportation Center. Continental Resturant occupies the bulk of the lobby area.
