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.
I don’t know much about the theater’s history (research on this very website indicates that the theater became an AMC 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. As for the Leo Mall itself (it was nothing more than a glorified shopping center with a ceiling), it has long been destroyed to make way for a Mega-K-Mart.
Any additional info would be appreciated, because I spent an uncountable number of hours in this bizarre little “parking lot” theater.
