I think the argument about classic theaters v. multiplexes has been dispensed with. I have added quite a few megaplexes myself recently. I do think that this site has more to offer than Cinematour, and I think that more information and comments on the multiplexes will be filled in as time goes on. Obviously there is more input on the “classic” houses as opposed to the standard twelve-screen concrete box.

second that, though your post is interesting, I have no idea where it came from.

This theater opened around 1995. It was part of the redevelopment of the Downtown area. It’s opening coincided with the opening of Steamtown Mall. All of this was concurrent with the National Park Service’s redevelopment of the Steamtown train museum, which the NPS owns.

This theatre has been “temporarily closed” for the last three months due to an early morning fire in downtown Scranton on August 19.

Stopped off and caught a flick the other day, completely empty in the afternoon: I saw more staff than patrons. The theater is decent – comfortable, good projection. Truth be told, the popcorn was pretty awful. The theater one floor, off one hallway. I assume the stadium seating was a retrofit, but the theater had good sightlines and a decent sized screen. The other thing is 2 of the theaters are missing: I was in theater #5, and walked past (on the right) 1, 2 and finally 5 – on the left I noticed theaters 6, 7, and 8.

The “missing” two theaters are back. The wall bordering the theaters and the store next door was partially destroyed in the fire. The two theaters were rebuilt and recently reopened.
