Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about Fox Theatre chain reserach info needed on Feb 7, 2007 at 7:01 pm

In Philadelphia, PA, the Fox Theatre, located on the SW corner of 16th and Market Street, was originally owned by The Stanley Company of America (AKA Stanley Warner Theatres), until the late 1940’s, when National Theatres, and then Milgram Theatres Co. acquired this theatre. This Fox Theatre closed in 1980.

The building design for this Fox Theatre is the exact same design as the Loew’s State Theatre/State Twin Theatre in NYC.

There were also two Fox Theatres that Milgram Theatres built and operated that were outside Philadelphia. They were: the Fox Willingboro Theatre and the Fox Levittown Theatre. The Fox Levittown Theatre was located on Lincoln Highway (Business US Route 1), in what is now called Langhorne Square Shopping Center. This theatre closed in the late 1980’s as United Artists-Eric I-95 Twin Theatre, and was replaced by a Chuck E. Cheese Pizzeria. The Fox Willingboro Theatre was located on NJ Route 130.

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about AMC Downtown Disney 24 on Dec 23, 2006 at 5:53 pm

So far, the only seat count I was able to get from the AMC pleasure Island 24 was 188 seats in House #22.

Correction on original Theatre numbers: current House #24 was Original house #2, and current House #23 was original House #1

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about Stanley Center for the Arts on Dec 23, 2006 at 5:47 pm

The name of the theatre chain that was started by Stanley and Jules Mastbaum was not called “Mastbaum', but was called "The Stanley Company of America”. It was this chain that opened several theatres that were called “Stanley Theatre”: This one in was Utica, as welll as 2 theatres in Philadelphia that were called “Stanley Theatre”. The first one opened in 1910, and was renamed to “Stanton Theatre” in 1921, when the second “Stanley Theatre” opened.

Both of these Philadelphia theatres were closed by the sucessor chain to Stanley & Jules Mastbaum’s company, (in 1968 and 1970), that sucessor chain was RKO Stanley Warner (and after other mergers, was also known as RKO Century Warner, Cineplex Odeon, Loews Cineplex, and AMC Theatres)

The AMC Hamilton 24’s set up is different from the AMC Neshaminy 24. The big 4 theatres at AMC Hamilton 24 (Houses 11 to 140 are in the middle of the complex, which is typical AMC megaplex setups. AMC Neshaminy 24’s big 4 theatres are at the entrance to the complex.

The Dark Red/burgundy is the top color of the big 4 houses (1, 2, 23, 24)

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 on Dec 20, 2006 at 4:19 pm

AMC is not tied to Moviefone. AMC, along with National Amusements, owns Movie Tickets.com,

The reason AMC did not put any money into the E-Walk 13 is because they knew they have to sell the theatre, as mandated by the Department of Justice.

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about Quakertown 6 Theaters on Dec 2, 2006 at 7:45 pm

I always assume this theatre was a 5 plex, as the newspaper had it listed. This theatre also was operated by Budco Theatres, who also operated the Doylestown Barn Cinema Theatre (aka AMC Barn 5 Theatre), the Plymouth Cinema Theatre, and the 309 Cinema Theatre (aka AMC 309 Cinema 9 Theatre), to name a few

The AMC Premiere Twin was closed 5 years before AMC Neshaminy 24 even was built.

This theatre was opened by Ramon Posel, owner of the Leo Mall Twin Theatre, Premiere Twin Theatre, Ritz 5 Theatre, Ritz 4 At The Bourse Theatre, and Ritz East Twin Theatre before selling this theatre, along with the leo and the premiere to AMC in early 1980.

It seems that Amboy is not the only Multiplex Cinemas to be closed. Now it seems that the All jersey Multiplex Cinemas (The former Redstone’s Newark Drive-In) is now closed.

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about AMC Rockaway 16 on Nov 15, 2006 at 1:12 pm

From what the picture of their concession stand look like, it has the old Loews Theatres “Lights” logo on the stand’s front. The seats are definitely AMC “Stadium Seating” style seats

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about AMC Citywalk Stadium 19 on Nov 4, 2006 at 3:33 pm

William, all of the former Loews Cineplex Theatres anre now called either AMC loews, AMC Star or AMC Magic Johnson. Examples include: AMC Loews Universal City 18 Theatre (Former Cineplex Odeon Universal City 18 Theatre), AMC Loews 34th Street 14 Theatre (Former Loews Cineplex 34th Street 14 Theatre), AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 Theatre (former Magic Johnson Harlem USA 9 Theatre), AMC Loews Shore 8 Theatre (former Cineplex Odeon Shore 8 Theatre), AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 10 Theatre (former Stanley Warner Route 4 Theatre).

With regards to the twinning of the old Premiere Twin Theatre, it was not AMC, but Ramon Posel, owner of the Premiere at the time, as well as the Leo Mall Theatre, the Bucks Mall Colonial Theatre, and the Ritz 5 Theatre, who had the Premiere twinned between 1973 and 1975.

Not sure of the new 3 color alignment that will be used for House 1, 2, 23 and 24 with the current re-painting of the auditoriums. The Dark red/Burgundy color is the new upper color for the other 20 theatres.

The new manager of the AMC Loews Shore 8 is coming from the AMC (William Goldman’s/Budco) Orleans 8 Theatre, in Philadelphia, PA

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about AMC Loews Fresh Meadows 7 on Sep 28, 2006 at 11:40 am

Thanks. I kinda figured out about the twinning. It was the same way that William Goldman/Budco, General Cinema, and Sameric Theatres twined all thier theatres in the Philadelphia area.

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about Cineplex Odeon Route 17 Triplex on Sep 28, 2006 at 10:19 am

Century’s Paramus Theatre was already a twin by the time Century Theatres bought RKO Stanley Warner from Pacific Theatres in 1981.

This was probally the only Cineplex Odeon theatre that never had the Cineplex Odeon name on the outside of the building, instead keeping the “RKO Century’s Paramus Theatre” name on the building until it closed a week before Loews Cineplex became part of AMC Theatres.

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about AMC Loews Fresh Meadows 7 on Sep 28, 2006 at 10:10 am

On AMC’s website, this theatre is called “AMC Fresh Meadows 7”, and the newspaper calls it “AMC Loews Fresh Meadows 7”. I this is because Cineplex Entertainment (A Canadian company) owns the rights to the “Cineplex Odeon” name.

Another question? How did they convert this from a twin to a 7 plex?

Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about Movie theater tosses texting teens on Sep 28, 2006 at 9:40 am

At my theatre, we will throw someout if:

1: There was a complaint from another guest about them
2: If they are Under 17 and sneaking into a R-rated film

The only time my theatre will use police force if the person getting thrown out is either drunk or stoned, or if there was a fight in the theatre.
