Story in today’s Philly.com about police needing to be called to disperse a crowd of 400-500 teenagers who gathered in this complex’s lobby around 9pm on 12/16/13.

Detective Williams had this to say …

“The kids were "just milling around the lobby area, the parking lot … just basically being slightly unruly,” Williams said. The teens were not moviegoers."

A year and half later, several AMCs in the NYC area got Digital IMAX theaters.

It will be August of this year when The AMC Loews Cherry Hill 24, as well as the AMC Hamilton 24 and the AMC Neshaminy 24, will have their Digital IMAX Theatres operational.

better news. IMAX 3D will come to this theater come summer 2008 as a part of a deal between AMC and IMAX.

I agree that this is a terrible theater. Bad sound, rude employees, and a bad layout. Not to mention high prices. again, though, convenience wins out over everything else.

Probably…the newer AMC theaters have the NCM contracts, while the older theaters that were once Loews Cineplex still carry Screenvision and Fandango, which is confusing for most movie goers when buying tickets. The only thing that’s changed is that the Moviewatcher card as well as the AMC entertainment card can be used at all AMC theaters. I hate it when the show the pre-show as film, not digital as the newer theaters do. The General Cinema theaters that were acquired by AMC were given a different makeover than the Loews deal, as those theaters were better than the Loews brand.

Do you think AMC keeping the Loews, Cineplex Odeon, Star & Magic Johnson name on the buildings has anything to do with the Screenvision Advertising & Fandango Ticketing contracts that Loews Cineplex entered into right before the merger agreement with AMC?

Cineplex Odeon Theatres bought RKO Century Warner Theatres (aka RKO Stanley Warner Theatres-Stanley Warner Theatres-The Stanley Company of America, RKO Cinema 5-Rugoff Theatres-Walter Reade Theatres-Plitt Theatres) in early 1987. Loews/Sony Theatres bought Cineplex Odeon Theatres in 1998. AMC Theatres bought Loews Cineplex Entertainment in 1/27/2006.

And when did that chain go out of business? Is it when Cineplex Odeon took over the operation and made it into their own business?

All of the former Loews Cineplex theatres up in NYC area, Detroit area, and Chicago area still has their “Loews”, “Cineplex Odeon”, “Star” and “Magic Johnson” names on their buildings.

In regards to RKO Stanley Warner: In 1930, Warner Brothers acquired The Stanley Company of America, and renamed the theatre division to “Stanley Warner”. Pacific Theatres bought Stanley Warner in the late 1950’s/early 1960’s, and then acquired RKO Theatres in 1967, and merged RKO and Stanley Warner into 1 division: RKO Stanley Warner, while creating another division: Pacific East. Pacific Theatres also had in the NYC area another division: RKO Cinema 5 (Former Rugoff Theatres).

In 1981, when Almi/Century acquired RKO Stanley Warner from Pacific Theatres, they renamed the new company to “RKO Century Warner Theatres”

Wouldn’t it be better if Clearview bought the theater from AMC and make it more friendly? That would be cool!!!

To my knowledge AMC hasn’t changed any of it signs. Maybe they plan on keeping the theaters AMC/Loews like RKO/Stanley Warner kept the 2 names when they merged.
I agree with the post above. I went to AMC Granite Run 2 weeks ago when I was in town and AMC sucks. The theater had so many ads plus the popcorn was so salty it made me sick. The manager was nice enough to refund my money.

As of right now, the Loews name will still be used as a division of AMC Entertainment, which has more theater brands than any theater exhibitor in America. Speaking of Cherry Hill, have you seen Ali Larter going to that theater, since she was born and raised in that town? She’s the woman who’s in Heroes, and the AMC Moviewatcher preshow is hawking her hit show a lot!!!

Rode by this past weekend and all the signage on the outside of the theatre complex still says LOEWS, wonder when they will change it to the AMC nameplate?

12-18-1998 article (probably Philadelphia Inquirer) stated that Cherry Hill would have 4400 seats and take up 95,000 square feet and be Art Deco in style.

I miss thew time when Lowe’s cherry hill was the place to go now that AMC took over the theater when down hill it’s dirty, movies never start on time, there’s always sometime wrong with the projection system, and they changed the food combos. Experience the Difference yea there’s a difference a poor quality difference. I go to Carmike Theaters in Allentown its a all Digital picture and sound. Hope Camden, NJ movie house with 2 IMAX screens at the waterfront opens soon

That’s why it’s much better to go to the Ritz.

This is the WORST Theatre….Everytime I go to see a new movie…The theatre is always packed with ignorant people…Both young & older.
I just went this past Sat (Feb. 6 2007) & it was a waste of my $9.50. Between the people yelling comments back & forth to their friends across the theatre…to the cell phones ringing & being answered & Then the peopel haveing loud convos like they were out side & not caring that their were people who wanted to watch the movie.
We complainewd as did other people…& all we got the first time was a young worker come in..stood there…saw some one he knew (one of the trouble makers) he shook his hand & off he went….The second time they sent a couple people in..towards the end of the movie who stood there a half hour. The theatre was real quiet then….but again, as soon as they left…it was mayheim.
We complained after & wanted our money back…all we got was a lousy guest pass (which i did not take)Sae yourself aggravation & don’t go here…If they can’t handle the kind of people they attract..they should close down or charge a cheaper rate!

Rest of the Best
If you’re into cinema as consumerism, the AMC Loews Cherry Hill 24 and the AMC Neshaminy 24 (the top two-grossing screens in the Delaware Valley), the Regal Warrington Crossing Stadium 22 and AMC Franklin Mills 14 all offer a sufficient if not soulless multiplex experience conveniently located near huge shopping centers with miles of free parking and fast food.

As far as the first comment is concerned about the bridge… even tho a truck hit it, they are going to rebuilt it. Now about the idea about parking in the mall and walking over a pedestrian bridge to see a movie… that’s a serious hike between two vast parking lots. That bridge wasn’t built for people with cars… it was ment for the people who come to the mall in a bus to deter them from crossing rt. 38 on foot and getting themselves killed. – not to mention the “element” in the area.. there is no way you would ever find me trapped on that bridge.
