This week at Neshaminy, the following theaatres are going “Digital”: Theatres #4, 5, 6, 12, 15, 16, 17, 19, and 23. It will bring a grand total of 12 Digital Theatres and Digital IMAX to Neshaminy 24
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.
When did the Hatboro changed the front of the theatre from the 1938 photo, to the 1983 photo? The theatre had a great looking marquee in 1938.
This theatre should be listed as Closed/Demolished, since there is a Giant [PA] (former Genuardi’s) located there.
I found out that this theatre was demolisherd and replaced by Genuardi’s Family Markets. This was shortly after the opening of the AMC Marple 10 and AMC Granite Run 8 Theatres
This theatre is now named AMC Star Fitchburg 18
IMAX Corp. has retrofitting existing screens for the Digital IMAX. They mostr likely will never build a 70mm IMAX setup again. Franklin mills, along with Neshaminy, Hamilton, cherry Hill, and New Brunswick 18 will be getting Sanctum: An IMAX 3D Experience this Friday. King of Prussia will be keeping Tron Legacy IMAX 3D.
Since the end of 2010, the AMC Franlin Mills 14 Theatre has had a IMAX screen installed, joining AMC Neshaminy 24, AMC Hamilton 24, AMC Loews Cherry Hill 24, The Franklin Institude, and REG King of Prussia Stadium 16 as the only IMAX screens in the Philadelphia area
Also, shouldn’t the Ardmore be listed as a Twin Theatre, since it was, during the last 20 years, listed as either “Eric Ardmore Twin Theatre” and “United Atists Ardmore Twin Theatre”
The Ardmore Theatre has had 3 different marquees. The final marquee was installed around 1940, and had the name “ARDMORE” on the top of the marquee, until around 1977,when it was replaced by “ERIC”.
Since January 1, this theatre is now named “AMC Downtown Disney 24 Theatres”
In Philadelphia, the Boyd Theatre was named after Alexander Boyd. The Stanley Theatre was named after Stanley Mastbaum, one of the 2 founders of The Stanley Comapny of America (also known, after mergers, as Stanley Warner, RKO Stanley Warner, RKO Century, Cineplex Odeon, and AMC Loews)
It was in June of 1979, when this theatre was known as RKO Cinerama I & II Theatre, that “ROCKY II” opened here.
The AMc Pleasure Island 24 only has 1 ETX screen, according to the AMC website. I don’t know if it’s Screen #1 or Screen #2 (the ones by the now shuttered Virgin megastore)
It was actually the neon light fixture in the “Neshaminy Mall 6” sign. That sign belongs to Neshaminy Mall, and not to the theatre.
And to Willow Grove, PA
Here’s a link to a aerial look of the Budco Doylestown Barn Cinema from 1971: http://www.historicaerials.com/?poi=12679
From this aerial, the portion that was to the right of the Barn Cinema wasn’t built, but the left portion (aka “The Silo”) was already built
Loved the ad. It looks like an early Budco Theatres ad.
In the Philadelphia Inquirer, this theatre is now called “Rave University City 6 Theatre”
This is now called AMC Plaza 5 Theatre, with the merger between AMC and Kerasotes completed today
