News About This Theater

Tilton 8 Imax

The Tilton Theatre was opened on December 23, 1965 with Sean Connery in “Thunderball”. It was later twinned. It was expanded in 1988 and again in 1998. Located in the Tilton Shopping Center on Tilton Road just 15 miles from Atlantic City. The theatre is a squared cinder block building with the front painted red and a small flat marquee over the entrance.

The nine auditoriums are comfortable and clean but small. No large screen auditorium. The total seating capacity was 2,150. The theatre was awarded favorite theatre for 2004 by the Atlantic Press. It was closed by Frank Theatres in September 2018. It was taken over by Square Theatres and reopened as the Tilton Square Theatre on April 23, 2019. It now operates with 8-screens and a seating capacity on 1,089.

Just wondering – does anybody know what happened to Bill Murray – NO – NOT the actor, but the manager of the Tilton?? I’m guessing that when the Franks took over the theatre, Bill decided to go bye-bye…..

Hey, Bill Murray (me) moved to New York City five years ago and is on the other side of the camera now…I loved the Tilton, but, the time had come. 45 years was a good run for the original owners and many of them mine also…r.i.p.

Theatre has been reduced to 8 auditoriums, but a serious near gut renovation on every level has brought the old Tilton Theatre back to life!

Did the Town Cinema that was Frank Theater also close? They played Jaws the summer it opened. Saw Tommy here at the Tilton when it was a single screen theater.
