Located on Bustleton Avenue between Byberry Road and Hendrix Street, the Leo Mall Twin was quite the dandy little theater in the pre-multiplex days.
It opened December 25, 1964 as the Leo Theatre, a single screen operation. On December 20, 1974 it became the Leo Mall Twin when AMC took over the property at the same time as the Bucks Colonial, the Woodhaven, and the Premiere (which turned out to be a hell of a pick-up, eh?)), but this one time I saw a double feature of “Cloak and Dagger” and “The Last Starfighter” there, which was awesome. Also, I do recall “E.T.” playing there for almost a full year.
Closed at the end of 1990, the building itself still remains, it became a Chinese buffet, and by 2013 a Four Seasons restaurant which closed to become a Clairmont Bistro which appears to have closed by February 2016. As for the Leo Mall itself (it was nothing more than a glorified shopping center with a ceiling), it has survived over the years.
Any additional info would be appreciated, because I spent an uncountable number of hours in this bizarre little “parking lot” theater.
