It’s on Franks Theaters website now -I wonder what this will mean as this theater split product with the Towne 16 – leading to several indie films to play in the area across 25 screens.

Currently closed – – however they’ll be getting an IMAX screen (not sure if its a retrofit with stadium seating or a new addition…)

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.

Actually now this venue is known as the Tilton 8 & IMAX. The IMAX opened back in May with Iron Man 3. According to the AC Press article on the venue, it’s boasting an 85-foot IMAX screen and Series 2 IMAX Digital Projection in a 400-leather seat theater.

Four additional auditoriums are scheduled to open May 17, and the remaining three by June 7, company President Bruce Frank said.

So by this posting (6/12/13) you’d think it would be all open. However the website for this is only showing IMAX screen times.

Frank said the new IMAX theater will charge $17 for adults and $15 for children. There is no additional charge for IMAX in 3-D, he said.
