Opened as the AMC Woodhaven Mall 4 inside of the small-ish Woodhaven Mall on February 28, 1973. Seating was provided for 1,200, with 300 in each auditorium.

The mall itself is no more, and AMC has turned the site into a ten-screen multiplex which opened November 10, 1995. Practically within walking distance to AMC’s Franklin Mills theater, the Woodhaven is your standard B+ effort from AMC: Stadium seating, solid projection, passable theater size. It’s no Neshaminy, but it’s certainly no AMC Orleans, either…

(I saw the original Star Wars at the Woodhaven, waaaay back in ‘77.)

Hate to burst “film” fans bubbles, but the Woodhaven is now all Digital projection.

I tried to see Star Wars here in 1977. The theater was jammed and I stared at a package next to a woman till she moved it and I grabbed the seat. My brother got a seat somewhere else far away. Then I noticed that my mother couldn’t find a single seat. She was heading out to the car to wait for us for two hours. I felt too guilty at the idea of that, so I got my brother and we left with her. To this day, I’ve never seen Star Wars. Well, except for the first five minutes.

We did the same thing last summer at the AMC Mountainside 10 in New Jersey. I thought it was weird that they would cklose half the complex during the summer.

The AMC Woodhaven 10 is in the process of receiving recliners and is slated to receive a “MacGuffin’s” bar

From what I can gather from old pictures, the AMC Woodhaven 4 was a in the space that is now the Pet Store right next to, and butting up to Home Depot. The AMC 10 appears to be an altogether new build, separate from the 4-plex.

So helpful of a response.

Check out the pictures of the 4-plex at Cinematour — in a totally different spot than the 10-plex.

And then if you go check Google Earth/Historic Aerials you’ll see that the corner of the shopping center where the current 10-plex is was not there prior to 1995.

So I’m going to go with YEP.

shrug

why bother giving a detailed response. You’re wrong.

I live up that way and spent my younger years at the 4 plex I know where it was and also what happened after it closed and things it was connected with.

I stick by my nope –

Recollection and memories vs. a photo of the 4-plex being at the other end of the shopping center than the current 10-plex.

Whatever keeps you warm.
