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

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”.
This theatre is part of Regal Entertainment Group, under the “United Artists” branding.
The next IMAX movie after Super 8, Cars 2, and Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, to play here will be Harry Potter 7.2, in IMAX 3D, Real D 3D, and DLP

In between being Jacob Reed’s Men’s Store and Karlton Theatre, there was a Kugler’s Restaurant in the building, until at the latest late 1920, when the building was converted to the Karlton Theatre.
George, you are correct. i just looked on Historic Aerial, and the east wall of Office depot was right near where the west wall of the AMC Springfield Twin/Budco Cinema I Springfield was.
This theatre should have in the “also known” area it’s org. name, of Cineplex Odeon Menlo Park 12.
I know this theatre closed 1982/1983 by it’s final operator, Budco Theatres
The College Theatre was operated by Budco Theatres, from at least August 1974.
It was here at the Roxy Theatre that Stanley Durwood (of Durwood Theatres/AMC Theatres) thought up the concwept of the multi-screen theatre.
