These are Abt’s comments from the homepage item as to Mystery Eric Theatres-
who could forget the exit doors BELOW the screen. Saw Damnation Alley in Sound 360 here (a failed attempt at recreating sensurround). The theater also had 70MM capability (Starman, Raiders, among others) and, for its time, was a well run house.
Thanks. I will revise the Intro.
M Coate, we (Friends of the Boyd) purchased 22 Eric theater photos. I’ve gone to a lot of time & effort to identify all but one & post them on this site (since only one -this one- had its name on the back of the photos) and I’ve added a few theater pages when needed such as this one. I do prefer as accurate details as I can find, but have no time to research primary sources for most theaters. However, if anybody puts detail info as Comments, I do take the time to revise the
Introduction. Coming soon: a night time photo! We purchased the remaining photos from the series.
Not bad! All but one photo positively identified!
22 photos of 13 different Eric theaters were acquired by from someone who had received them in 1980 from Sameric Corporation (originally there would have been many more at Sameric)
5 exterior photos of the Sam Eric (Boyd), Eric Mark One (a rendering), Eric Rittenhouse, Eric Wynnewood, and Eric King have no numbers on the backs.
3 photographs (30592, 3, and 4) have been identified as Eric Concordville (Delaware County, PA).
4 photos (31622, 3, 4, 5) have been identified as Eric Pilgrim Gardens (also Delco)
2 exterior photos (32893, 4) appear to be Eric Lawrenceville, NJ
3 photos (32629, 31, 35) have been identified as Eric Allentown
2 exterior photos (36378, 83) have been identified as Eric Reading (which will soon be added to this website)
One exterior photo (38785) has been identified as Eric II Pennsauken, NJ
One auditorium photo (39130) there are suggestions, but no corroboration yet
One exterior photo (40323) appears to be Eric Feasterville (Bucks County, PA
A few more photos are on their way, so stay tuned!
from Avalon email yesterday- On June 24th, the Avalon will begin the project to install elevator access to Avalon 2 as the final project funded by the Avalon Legacy Campaign. In addition, the downstairs and upstairs lobby areas of theater 2 will be renovated, and new, fully accessible bathrooms will replace the existing restrooms.
Plans to turn it reconstruct the facade & into residences
Tim, thanks for the info, which I will incorporate into that theater’s Intro. Theatre 5 isn’t likely Pennsauken, though. Eric II Pennsauken is 38785. Theatre 5 is 39130. If Theatre 5 was the Pennsauken, then like all the other photo series, the 1st 3 numbers for Theatre 5 would be 387. These auditoriums all seem to have looked so alike…..
I know Theatre 5 isn’t the Eric Mark One because I was there. It is not the Concordville or others I’ve added here because there’s “series” numbers on the back & it doesn’t jive with any of the photos we have. Please add your Pilgrim Gardens recollection to that theater’s page.
Thanks, http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/3432added Mystery Theater 4 to that Pennsauken page.
2009 photo as Dollar Tree store
I added 3 photos to the photo gallery. The Eric sign isn’t in same exact place as cinematour photos that are later, but maybe sign was moved? Hopefully the photos belong to this theater but if not, somebody ID which Eric theater they belong to, please.
I added Mystery Theatre 1 photos as Eric Concordville though it disturbs me that the Eric sign isn’t in exact same place as the later Cinematour photos. But, unless someone has a better match…..
Theatre 2 has been identified as the Eric Pilgrim Gardens which I then added as a page at this website.
I’ve been thinking Theatre 1 could be the Eric Concordville so appreciate the comment.
Thanks, Richard as to Eric Reading. Might you or anybody have a street address so we can properly add it to this website?
Would appreciate more thoughts including Theatre 4.
As to Theatre 5, and the exteriors, these & other Eric theaters appear to have been designed by the same architects & are hard to distinguish one from another!
auditorium photo available
Last night the audience hadn’t expected Brad Pitt would appear in person at a screening of World War Z but there he was http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2013/06/06/brad-pitt-makes-surprise-appearance-at-king-of-prussia-movie-theater/
I’ve added 2 photos to the gallery. Not absolutely sure they are this cinema, but probably are.
I’ve posted a photo in the photo gallery.
I’ve placed a photo in the photo galley.
I’ve today placed a rendering, in the photo gallery.
I’ve placed a photo likely from Opening, in the photo gallery.
I’ve added an exterior photo of a theater named King from a collection of Eric theater photos. Is this photo correct for this theater?
Owner proposing demolition of auditorium:
Dial M for Murder world premiere in 3D here
Last weekend, I enjoyed 4k restored Lawrence of Arabia, in 5.1 surround sound at Ambler’s main auditorium. The curtain isn’t used often but it was opened after the overture music. Showing again 7 PM this Wednesday! Check out the wonderful lineup of classics including Gone with the Wind in August.
