It used to be a four-screen theater inside of the small-ish Woodhaven Mall, but the mall itself is no more, and AMC has turned the site into a ten-screen multiplex. 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.)

The Woodhaven Mall 4 Cinemas, and the AMC Woodhaven 10 Theatre are, although 2 seperate buildings, one continuous operation.

AMC opened this theatre in 1973 as “Woodhaven Mall 4 Cinemas”, changed the name to AMC Woodhaven Mall 4 Theatre after they acquired the Leo Twin Theatre, the Bucks Mall Colonial Twin Theatre, and the Premiere Twin Theatre from Ramon Posel in 1980.

The AMC Woodhaven 10 uses the same original phone number that the Woodhaven Mall 4 Cinemas first used back in 1973.

The AMC Woodhaven 10 Theatre opened in 1973 as the AMC Woodhaven Mall 4 Cinema. It was late 1995 when the current AMC Woodhaven 10 opened.

The original Woodhaven Mall 4 Theatre seated 1,200, with 300 in each auditorium. The theatre also had Bright Red and Gold in the Wall coverings and the carpets when first opened.

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

Opened on March 7th, 1973. Its first ad (typical AMC design) can be found in the photo section for this cinema.

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.
