Frank Theatres Montgomeryville Stadium 10

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This theatre was built as the single screen Eric Montgomeryville in 1968. In 1974, it was twinned. In 1976, it became a three-screener. In 1989 it became the Eric 7 Montgomeryville when it added four more screens.

The Eric theatre had 70mm capability when it showed “Return of the Jedi” there in 1983. Eric theatres were sold in 1989 to United Artists, which became Regal and they departed this theatre in April, 2006. Frank Theatres then tookover the lease and renovated.

One of the more interesting theatres I’ve been to. It’s a bizarre blend of 80s multiplex and 00s megaplex. The lobby is the 80s multiplex, beige-colored, bland, nondescript. Then you go into the theatres… and you’ve advanced twenty years. Comfy high-back seats, stadium seating, and cup holders. Staff is quite friendly.

Not sure if I’d rank this at the top, but it’s a nice diversion from the AMCs and Regals of the area.

The 1980’s beige-colors that is in Frank’s Montgomeryville Stadium 12 is probally a holdover from it’s days as Sameric Theatres' Eric Montgomeryville 3 Theatre/United Artists Montgomeryville 7 Theatre.

What i’m trying to figure ou is how they were able to fit 12 Stadium seating theatres in a complex designed (after add-on') as a 7 theatre complex?

MikeRa: No Joke, I saw Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead in a theater with I think 5 rows!!! Some are still pretty big and very nice though!

All I have to say is wow. I stopped going to this theatre years ago when Regal took over because it was a dump. Since they renovated the theatres to stadium I started going back and have been very pleased. Today when I got there with the kids to see the new Alvin movie, I got a nice surprise. The whole theatre now shows digital movies. No more film! They have Sony 4K machines that made it look like an LCD tv in hi-def. I am not aware of any other theatre in the Philly area that has done this completely. Very nice surprise, if they only didn’t split movies with that dump AMC down the road I would never go elsewhere. Very nice indeed!

That arrangement of splitting films with the AMC 309 Cinema is a holdover from the 1970’s/1980’s when the Budco 309 Cinema Twin and Eric Montgomeryville Theatre were locally owned.

Correction! We only have 10 screens! Please correct this, I work there so I would know that we have 10 screens, but if you look up the show times you’ll clearly see there is only enough times for 10 screens. Frank Theaters is supposed to expand again to give us a new lobby, new concession stand and 2 new screens but who knows when that’ll happen, they haven’t even given us a real sign yet, we just have a tarp over the old United Artists sign!

Gene Sussman was manager from the opening,
where is he today? I remember he was so
happy that he installed pink spot lights
in the lobby. He had a GF who assisted.
Her name was Janet.
