This drive-in closed later than ‘78. I saw a triple-bill of Dragonslayer, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Clash of the Titans there in '81 or '82. The picture was abysmally dark and you could barely see the movie.

Saw “Star Wars” here during it’s initial run in ‘77.

Up until fairly recently, the Phila Orchestra used to record in the auditorium of the building. My father-in-law plays with the Orchestra and said that the theater was well-known for its acoustics. About 10 years ago or so, Michael Crawford (Broadway’s original Phantom) recorded portions of a record there. It’s cited in the liner notes.

Everytime I pass the now empty Eckerd, I shake my head. I remember when Tina Turner, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, and Rick Springfield played the Century in the early 80s.

When I was a kid, I remember seeing “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai” here. I seem to recall that it was the ONLY theater in the Philly area showing it. My dad took me on a Saturday afternoon and we were among the SIX people watching the movie. The other four were wearing Japanese-style headbands.

Kind of a surreal memory.
