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.

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.

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…..

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

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.

You could be right. I thought it was in May, but it was thirty years ago. I do recall that I saw the film at the Tilton shortly after it opened there, within the first week.

*"I saw Star Wars at this theater in May 1977."*

It’s not possible for you to have seen “Star Wars” at the Tilton Twin in May ‘77 since the movie didn’t open there until July.

This sort of mis-recollection is common since it’s well known that the “official” release date of “Star Wars” was May 25, 1977. However, what many people overlook/don’t know/forget is that the movie was not given a broad, nationwide saturation release; the movie opened in May ‘77 in only a handful of markets and then had a slow, staggered distribution taking many weeks (or months in some cases) to reach certain markets.

My brother worked at the Burger Chef in Absecon, which became a Burger King (and still is, I believe). I didn’t know there was a Burger Chef in Northfield as well.

The shopping center was there a short time before the Tilton was built. The department store was “MR. BIG”, before it became a “Jamesway”. The super market was called “Pantry Pride”. In front of the shopping center was a “Burger Chef”, was later called “Barney’s Reateaurant” I also remember an “Art Handler’s” appliance store.

I last worked at the Tilton in 1981. It was a Twin by that time. The Main store in the shopping center was “MR. BIG”, then it was changed to “JAMESWAY” The Tilton booth was still change over & carbon arcs with 6000' reels. Theatre #one had Century 35/70mm machines. The lamp houses were Ashcraft. Mort Hodge was the main projectionist and business agent of local 310 at that time. In 1977, Hodge was alone in the Tilton booth during the day. Three thugs came into the booth and tied him up and set the place on fire. One of the thugs substained burns. Mort managed to escape and the fire did minimal damage. The thugs were caught headed north on the Garden State Parway. I believe that the Tilton was getting ready to show “Star Wars”.

I can’t believe this theater is still standing, I haven’t been there in years, I always loved the building and the atmosphere. I wonder has it changed much? Could we maybe get some Interior pictures??

The Frank family have always been jerks even back in the 70’s.
