Alas the days of the Bridge theatre possibly re-opening as an operating venue are over.

It has purchased and transformed into a local indoor baseball academy. Purchase price $2,000,000

Unfortunately the first update to this theatre in almost 4 years is regarding a robbery that took place at this venue Friday night (3/28/14)

“Authorities say the unidentified man walked into the AMC Marple 10 theater in Delaware County at about 11 p.m. Friday night. The man allegedly took $600 from the registers and fled the theater within seconds. Police say a security guard followed the man into the parking lot and fired shots after the robber pointed a gun at him. Authorities believe one of the shots may have hit the car, which had two other men inside.”

Looks very similar in design and layout to the Loews 84th Street in New York city.

You didn’t mention it, but I’ll presume that this is a reserved seating venue as well

Thanks for taking the time and going there and taking the photos.

I didn’t visit the concession stand on my trip. They did re-do the lobby and moved it over to the side. I had attended a 9:30 am showing and well with having Artie’s down the street, I didn’t have need to visit.

No sign of a bar of any kind there and it might be a good thing,since I located an article about this now being called the “perfect theatre for couples”– knowing that the arm-rest in adjoining seats can be lifted up, who knows.

Here’s that linkage….

in answer to Dave’s question, there is now stadium seating and quite ample space between rows.

If you live in New York City or live any place near it I don’t understand why you wouldn’t attend a movie here than some nondescript mall googolplex.

This was one of my favorite film going experiences today. Reserved seating, plush recliners, courteous and attentive staff (when I was dashing out to refill my water bottle, someone standing on the floor I was in [bottom floor] informed my I could use the Coke FreeStyle machine and get my water from there.

It’s so enjoyable even with the reserved seating if you wish to not view previews you don’t have to. You’ve got a ticket reserved. The only downside was what I noticed when I left and headed out onto Broadway- the ticket buying process at the box office can be quite cumbersome with people picking their seat locations , so if you’re running late this could be a problem.

I used my AMC Stubs reward and bought ticket online and selected my seat that way and picked up using ticket kiosk.

Movie I attended was “The Grand Budapest Hotel"which was a really enjoyable movie- but you need to be a fan of Wes Anderson to truly enjoy it.

Congratulations and best wishes to you and your company on this acquisition. I had noticed the sale signs were removed from the marquee and was about to post up here and wonder if any one had an update.

Please do keep us informed as to the progress and also what plans your company has that you can share with us as to the venue’s use (movies, live theatre, etc)

The Four-Star is still screening titles on film. Even at a time with prints it didn’t think to be film available. They currently do not have DCP capability- just a BlueRay every now and then.

looks as though this is going to meet the wrecking ball.

Plans are to raze the theater for an 8 story building including condos, 7,500 square feet of retail and 24 parking spots.

Story in today’s Philly.com about police needing to be called to disperse a crowd of 400-500 teenagers who gathered in this complex’s lobby around 9pm on 12/16/13.

Detective Williams had this to say …

“The kids were "just milling around the lobby area, the parking lot … just basically being slightly unruly,” Williams said. The teens were not moviegoers."

Nice coverage of the rally on 12/10 by KYW Newsradio. Link here [which includes comments from our own Howard Haas]

http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2013/12/10/development-plan-for-historic-center-city-movie-house-divides-neighbors/

Even though it’s really a movie theatre all that often Luis V- the former Prince Music Theatre (nee Midtown)occasionally shows movies , it is a single screen, but right now focuses on Bdway style shows and concerts.

It’s important the Boyd be saved, but also that part of Chestnut Street needs work as well.
