The original Woodhaven Mall 4 Theatre seated 1,200, with 300 in each auditorium. The theatre also had Bright Red and Gold in the Wall coverings and the carpets when first opened.
actually, according to Boxoffice Magazine (Week of April 3, 1972) The AMC Woodhaven Mall 4 was scheduled to opened in Fall of 1972. It’s announcement of construction was in March of 1972.
The theatre shares the same design with the GCC Sunset Hills 4 Theatre, in Sunset Hills, MO, and the GCC Northeast 4 Theatre, in Philadelphia, PA, amung those with the “Cinema I & II” designed buildings
The former General Cinema Northeast 4 Theatre, in Philadelphia, PA, also had this particular design when it opened as Cinema I & II in 1965.
The address for the LP Theatre/Eric Lawrence Park Twin/Barnes & Noble is 1901 Sproul Road. To the left of this theatre was Lit Brothers Department Store, which opened as Snellenburgs
The Lawrence Park Theatre was twinned between August 1974 to December 1974. Which was even before Sameric Theatres acquired this theatre, which was sometime after April, 1977
Mitchaia, I’m What I’ve seeing in the 1971 aerial look, is that of a backward “L” shape, with the first addition (with the intersection of Easton Road [PA 611] and Old Easton Road behind you) to the left of the original building, (AKA looking just like , in a way, the former AMC/Budco/William Goldman’s Orleans Theatre Screen #1-4).
I do know, when looking at the Barn 5 from the front of the building (with PA 611 behind you), the main entrance was on the right hand side, near the second addition 9which in it’s final days was Screens #4-5)
The AMC Woodhaven 10 Theatre opened in 1973 as the AMC Woodhaven Mall 4 Cinema. It was late 1995 when the current AMC Woodhaven 10 opened.
The new screen setup for the AMC Downtown Disney 24, as far as the Fork & Screen side is concerned is as follow: Theatres #19 & 20 is on the right hand side when you walk in, with both on the hallway on the right side, and a wall on the left hand side seperating Theatres #1 to 18 (The ETX [Aud #1]/Stadium Seating Side, and Theatres #21-24 on the left hand side, with Theatres #21 & #23 on the left hand side of the hallway, and #22 & 24 on the right hand side of the hallway. The “AMC MacGuffins” bar is where the concession stand used to be.
I was too young when the original film came out, but i did see the 1981 re-release at the AMC Premiere Twin Theatre (which is where I saw the 70mm release of the Empire Strikes Back in May, 1980)
What I’ve heard, is the REG United Artists (Sameric/RKO Stanley Warner) Moorestown 7 is now closed so they can start building the new REG Regal Moorestown Stadium 12 Theatre
The theatre, as well as part of the shopping center, was torn down for the Genuardi’s/Giant [PA] store.
I’ve saw “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back – The Special Edition” here on 2/23/1997, in Auditorium #7, and “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” in 2D, in Auditorium #1 on 2/20/2012.
In the 1980’s, this theatre was operated by AMC Theatres, and was known as “AMC Manor Square 3”
The front entryway to the AMC Clifton Commons 16 is simmilar to that of the AMC Plymouth Meeting Mall 12 Theatre. http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/20914
As of today, AMC Neshaminy 24 is now “All Digital”, with Theatres 3, 8-11, 14, 20-21 going digital the week of February 13 to 16, and Theatres #2 and 22 on February 21, and Theatre #24 on February 22
Here is a partial seatcount for the AMC Woodhaven 10:
I couldn’t get the counts for #4, #7 and #10
Since October of this year, the Regal Warrington Crossing Stadium 22 converted one of their theatre to the Digital IMAX format. The new name is now Regal Warrington Crossing Stadium 22 & IMAX Theatre.
I have a old Philadelphia Inquirer movie theatre ad from June 1943 that has the Terminal Theatre as a William Goldman Theatre, and the Tower Theatre and 69th Street Theatre as a Stanley Warner Theatre. I would have to assume that in the early 1950’s Stanley Warner and William Goldman swapped the Terminal Theatre and the Tower Theatre

Who owned the Tower Theatre before William Goldman Theatres?
Cinema I Springfield (AKA AMC Springfield Twin) was never owned by William Goldman Theatres. The photo mentions Budco Quality Theatre when it opened on 9/25/1964.
This past Thursday, July 14, had “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2” in various formats, on 23 screens, breaking the record of 16 screens for “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith”
The Cinema 19 Theatre looks like it closed in early 1979, since the Feb 1980 picture shows the theatre as borded up with the “Sold” sign out in front. That pic was taken shortly before it reopened as “Sam’s Place Twin”.
