A few weeks from now will be 10 years since the orleans closed (Labor Day 2007).
So 3 and a half years later and we can comment again! (I hope, if this goes thru) While I do miss the convience of the AMC Orleans 8, its time was up, if it got a nice renovation sometime in the 90s or even early 2000s it could’ve still been here today, but either way we have the memories of it. I do enjoy the Target there (which has been opened for over 2 years now) I won’t lie, and the last movie I would see at the orleans was the simpsons movie.
Yea the candy at movie theaters are usually crap $4 for a box with the candy in a small bag, well thats why you sneak candy in! lol. I was at this theater yesterday, I like it, not bad for a non-stadium seating theater, plus since most people are goin to mills or neshaminy its never too crowded usually.
There is a picture taken today (aug 19th) of the 5-8 building of the orleans 8, you can also see a wall of the new target.
So the new pepboys is opened, so thats means the back building of orleans 5-8 & old pep boys building will finally be knocked down.
They put up the walls for target, it is gonna be huge.
Also, now the seat count for theatre #1 is 529 seats.
Yeah tomorrow is the debut of IMAX at neshaminy!
All the shows past 7pm of Dark Knight sold out tonight, and its monday!, there was a 10:50pm, and we had to add a 11pm since it was in a 207 seat theatre, but not theatre #1, as it is now closed to get converted to imax.
Actually, it is indeed #1, as the guy has a picture of his ticket, staing so.
^ Yes, it looks to be either #1 or #24.
You see the non-stadium rows, basically all of them, except for the one closest to the stadium seating (for handicap seating purposes) will be removed, when they convert it to an imax theatre.
I’m hearing Kung Fu Panda will be the first movie shown in IMAX when it is converted.
Yea, good to see these posted again, as even one theatre comment section being closed due to violations is too much.
No understaning on that, someone with the money can do that, lol
It looks ok from when I see it on the bus (route 14).
The unused portion of the building actually now says “Space Available”
Well, they are building a new petsmart and pep boys where the old petsmart was (which was torn down after last xmas).
Also FYI thats my flickr page, I took those pics of the orleans theatre, good to see people enjoyin them.
There is the link again, from December 12th, 2007 of the orleans being demolished.
The smart move would’ve been to renovate orleans 8, I dont know about a single screen, but if it had 8 very good theatres, even without stadium seating, it could’ve lasted longer.
I am not happy to see orleans in a rubble, hell when I went up bustleton from cottman and didnt see orleans above everything, it didnt seem right, and yes I am a but sad, as that was THE theatre I always went to when I was younger, but from what I hear the neighborhood is the one that was keeping orleans down, they wanted to move into the old kiddie city building (wher petsmart is) but apparently the neighborhood was against it. If it was moved it would surely still be open
Well by now the Orleans 1-4 building is completley demolished, as well as the hollywood bistro and stores around it (Ja-Ann Fabrics and whatnot) The 5-8 Building is still up because Pep Boys will remain open until theirs is built and ready to open. Interstingly enough the old blockbuster across the street is now a MovieStop (From GameStop, you can buy, sell and trade movies)
Also of note is the left part of that building is already gone (theatres 1&2 I believe) that was added in 1980, so right there is the shell of the original orleans.
Well I went and took pictures today of the AMC Orleans being demolished, you can see theme at this link View link
Half of the 1-4 building of the orleans is already torn down (The small part, that was added in 1980, its a big hole on the side and you can see into the building, in the theatre.
Here is the group of pictures I took earlier today of the now closed orleans
Here is a picture from today (Sept 4th 2007). I like the thanks to the managers, cause I know 4 of them, all good people.
Well today is labor day, the final day for the orleans. Balls Of Fury will be the last new movie that orleans got.
