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.)

Another weekend at the AMC Woodhaven.

Saturday 6/15, I attended “This is the End”, a digital presentation with quite a sparse, but well behaved crowd. I was entertained, laughed at some parts of it, couldn’t get a song out of my head. If you see it you’ll understand.

Sunday 6/16 was quite a large crowd for a Sunday morning showing of “Man of Steel” on film. Once again the ones whom don’t get out much show it in not being able to separate themselves from their precious “smart"phones for 2 ¾ hours.

People actually brought infants to this screening. Unreal. One young girl in front of me actually brought out and began to play on an Nintendo DS during the movie. Thankfully the management and crew here at the Woodhaven are awesome and took care of it and apologized for the actions of others.

It was run on film- however, I really think this movie was more suited for a digital, perhaps IMAX experience.

Folks, “Man of Steel” is not a movie for small children. With promos, snipes, trailers, commercials and the movie itself, expect to spend close to three hours there. It is an intense violent movie.

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.

not the grand opening ad of this particular venue. The Woodhaven 4 was part of the actual Woodhaven Mall as you can see by the “next to Woolco” mention [ Woolco was a subsidiary of Woolworth]

Woodhaven 10 was a totally new building. But thanks though, cool ad.

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.

Big changes coming up to this venue, as it will be getting itself a complete remodel.

Changes include reserved, recliner seating. Also included will be a bar (McGuffins) which will be on the right hand side as you walk in the main door.(The PA liquor license application is in the window)

The renovations begin in May and will continue throughout the summer so they’ll be complete by the fall and holiday movie going season.

One side will be done at a time, so they will lose screens during the busy summer movie going season, but during my conversation with the manager about this, she told me that it was a hard decision that needed to be made.

I am quite pleased my “home venue' will be becoming a reclining seat reserved seat theatre. I’ll be making visits during the summer and fall and shall be providing genuine updates on the transformation. Hopefully management will allow some photos.

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.

Word today from one of the theatre employees who came in to tidy up whilst credits were running after “Inside Out”… renovations begin Monday 6/22 for the change over to the recliners. Interestingly enough the side 1-6 will be done first, while 7-10 remain open for the duration.

Then of course vice versa. The theatre now is as mentioned completely digital. Everything in the auditoriums themselves are on timers. I plan on making a few visits this summer and make notes where I can and take some photos.

Hmm photos of something involving a theater that someone posts a lot about, what a novel idea.

Renovations are well under way. Theaters 1-6 are completely shut down and inaccessible to patrons, as it’s a hard hat zone. Based upon information I received today from a staffer, 1-6 are expected to be re-opened mid August. Then from there, of course 7-10 will be next. The entire job is expected to be completed in mid October.

Kudos to AMC as a chain for updating the policy snipes. They are short and to the point now, people will hopefully pay attention.

I uploaded best I could on the construction. # putmymoneywheremymouthis
