This location’s building started out as a 1950’s Flat Roof Acme Markets, then became an AMC Theatres in 1990/1991
I have newspaper ads from 6/1/1991 and this theatre is still listed as “Eric 3 Fairless Hills”
According to Cinematour, this theatre opened 10/25/1991
I am not sure is will stay open when the Cinemark 12 at Christiana Mall opens
August 25 marks the 75th anniversary of the world premiere of “The Wizard Of Oz”,which played at the Boyd Theatre.
Today, most of the King Theatre site is now a parking lot next to the Marshalls (former Food Fair) location.
That newspaper ad is proof that this theatre was opened as a Sameric Theatre.
This theatre was in the 1970’s and early 1980’s part of the Budco Theatres chain
All great classic theatres in the Philadelphia area
The Cinemark website now has this theatre as “Cinemark 18 & XD”
The majority of the Eric Theatres did not have a marquee on the building, but instead had the streetside marquee that was on a signpost. This location, as well as the Eric MacDade Mall Theatre, the ERic Stratford Theatre, as well as the AMC 309 Cinema 9 Theatre, are good examples.
When this theatre became a 4-plex, Screens #3 & 4 were built behind the original building. The original building was split int a twin, and the other 2 screens were to the left of Screens #1 & 2.
IMAX 3D version of The Hobbit: The Desoliation of Smaug is playing at the Neshaminy 24, along with the Real D 3D version, and the 2D version.
I summitted a new page for the Regal Cinemas Moorestown Mall Stadium 12 & RPX Theatre
The Budco 309 Cinema was a Twin by the start of 1976. This location became a 3-plex in early to mid 1980.
The Regal Moorestown Mall Stadium 12 & RPX officially opens December 12
This photo would have to be in the 1980’s. The steet sign says “RKO Century Theatres”
When this became the Eric Concordville 4, they put up new signs and a marque on the building.
This booklet shows that the Ardmore was part of The Stanley Company of America, before that company was acquired by Warner Brothers
What I’ve heard is the shopping center opened in the late 1960’s with Two Guys Department Store, Rickel Home Center, and Shop Rite Supermarket.
It is the Eric Lawrenceville Theatre. It is an exact replica of the Eric Concordville Theatre, with a few difference, including the entrance is the reverse of the Concordville. The small marque under the “ERiC” sign looks like was added after the theatre was twinned.
Mikeoaklandpark, the Sameric chain also didn’t twin the Wynnewood, Mark I, and Eric’s Place Theatres.
I would assume it is correct. AFAIK, The King Theatre/King Twin was the only Eric Theatre that did not have the “Eric” name on the theatre itself.
It could be either AMC (Who’s closest theatre is in Cherry Hill), or Regal (Who has one being built in Moorestown, and a 2nd in Burlington)
I like how the Ardmore Theatre has it’s final marquee in this pic, with the “Ardmore” signage before it was replaced by the “ERIC” signage.
