Does anybody know what happened to this theater? When I was in Phila in 2000 it was boarded up and for sale or lease. I thought the theater opened in 1974 as Eric’s Place with The Towering Inferno.

Eric’s Place played ‘Star Wars’ in 1977, but the movie later moved to the former Eric Mark I theatre after a few weeks because they wanted to exhibit ‘Star Wars’ in 70mm. In later years, the other two films in the SW trilogy would play at the Sameric.
