Would this be the theater building? On B Street between 3rd and 4th.

This postcard shows a motel complex at the Reading Road address. Do you think the theater was part of this complex?

I’m amazed it lasted until 2003, if you look at the 1980 photo.

If I get some advance notice I can be there when they start the demolition.

The Front Door’s neighboring Atlantic Theater is not long for this world, apparently.

That’s probably why it was never added. I guess there were two theaters, although it’s a little hazy. I know that in a full day on the Pier we would always see both movies.

They usually had a double feature. I saw High Plains Drifter, Young Winston, Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Gang that Couldn’t Shoot Straight, among others.
