Picture number three is the lobby of the original Eric Pennsauken. This picture appears to have been taken in 1977 after the theatre was split into two theatres & still owned by Sameric. I was manager here from 1966 through 1977.
Gene Sussman was manager from the opening,
where is he today? I remember he was so
happy that he installed pink spot lights
in the lobby. He had a GF who assisted.
Her name was Janet.
During the 1950’s & early 1960’s the manager of this theatre was LOU WAKSHUL who went on to be manager of the Goldman Theatres all new ORLEANS THEATRE on Cottman Ave in NE PHILA
Former Pennsauken Police Chief, Ray Smalfus died in 2008.

This theatre was originally privately owne & was dated prior to the failure of Liberty Bell Race Track. I managed this theatre in the mid 1960’s. This was prior to me joining Mert & Sam Shapiro & their Sameric (ERIC) Theatre Corporation.
