Cinema I Springfield (AKA AMC Springfield Twin) was never owned by William Goldman Theatres. The photo mentions Budco Quality Theatre when it opened on 9/25/1964.

Was it originally a William Goldman Theater?

This opened on September 25th, 1964. The grand opening ad is in this theatre’s photo section.

George, you are correct. i just looked on Historic Aerial, and the east wall of Office depot was right near where the west wall of the AMC Springfield Twin/Budco Cinema I Springfield was.

Actually the theatre was demolished and currently an Office Depot is on the spot, it’s at the end of the Old Sproul Shopping Center. Genuardi’s is located in another shopping center further down Baltimore Pike.

I found out that this theatre was demolisherd and replaced by Genuardi’s Family Markets. This was shortly after the opening of the AMC Marple 10 and AMC Granite Run 8 Theatres
