Talk about adding insult to injury — my family and I have vacationed in Wildwood every summer for the past 22 years, and though we’ve never stepped foot in either the Shore or Blaker, it was truly sad to see it gone. Now, whaddya bet they build another stupid condo in its place?

What a sin to see that big empty dirt lot where once a grand and glorious theatre once stood.

The Photos & info above are fantastic. I visted the booth of Hunt’s Shore Twin maybe 20-30 years ago and met the projectionist, Joe Griesbach. Joe is an electronic genius and owns his own electronics store near Wildwood, NJ. The last time I visted Joe, he was doing projection at the Bayshore 8, in North Cape May, NJ. The theatre was once an Acme super market. The last time I talked to Joe on the phone, I think that he told me that “THE FRANKS”, were building a mega-plex in Rio Grande, NJ.

The Blaker theatre was located on the nw corner of this block, not behind or connected to the Shore, which was on the sw corner. The “Shore 4” experience was walking between the theatres, which most people didn’t realize if they weren’t familiar with the situation.

Let me add these were FORMER Hunt’s Theatres. After the Hunts left the picture in the 80’s (no pun intended), their theatres and boardwalk holdings faded into oblivion.

The remaining days of this theatre and the nearby Blaker are short. Both are overdue for demolition, long stripped of their decor save vintage moldering seats in the Shore balcony (green leather) and Blaker floor (red felt). Full information on all the Hunt’s Theatres can be found at the Boyer Museum in downtown Wildwood.
These theatres briefly re-opened in 1996-97 and were quickly panned due to leaking roofs, falling ceiling tiles and no a/c! At times they just let you in to have some patrons. We were in Wildwood for a month and the whole town seemed to be sleeping except for the bars.
At the recent 50’s week-end a section of the Shore sign along with other signs were lit up in the convention hall. The neon collectors there said about 60 more neon signs have been saved from being ruined. Save-a-sign number was (609)? 9725008.
Another of the building plans here now call for a movie complex just offshore of Wildwood in Rio Grande.
