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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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 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 June 1999 Philadelphia Magazine rated the AMC Woodhaven 10 a “3.8” on a 1 to 5 scale with comment “Across the road from GCC Franklin Mills and just as nice.” (that’s now AMC Franklin Mills). Highest possible rating was achieved in the Seating category, and very high ratings for Cleanliness and Screen & Sound.

The Woodhaven Mall that has the AMC Woodhaven 10 Theatre, is now called Home Depot Plaza, and is located at the interseection of PA 63 (Woodhaven Road & Expressway) and US Route 13 (Bristol Pike), in Bensalem, PA. Less than a ¼ mile west from the Woodhaven Mall/Home Depot Plaza is Franklin Mills Mall, in Philadelphia, PA.

This mall opened in 1973 with Woolco, Woodhaven Mall 4 Cinemas, Gaudio’s Garden Center and Acme Super Saver Supermarket. Today, the Home Depot is on the site of the Woolco store, Babies R us is in the Gaudio’s building, and Acme Super Saver is just called Acme, and the Woodhaven Mall 4 became the AMC Woodhaven 10.

Hi –

Wasn’t the Woodhaven Mall what is now the Queens Center Mall? I don’t remember a theatre there, but I do remember a mall located at Woodhaven Blvd / Slattery Plaza subway stop, in the 1970’s. One of the department stores (I don’t remember which one) and the mall itself could be entered at the mezzanine level. The windows, remnants of which are still there, showed merchandise and a view of the basement level of whichever store it was.

As I recall, the mall itself was called “Slattery Plaza,” and I used to shop there when I was a college student at Pratt Institute, 1971-1975. I never, ever went outside, and never saw Queens Blvd. until I was working at the Elmhurst Jennifer Convertibles in 2005.

Comments /replies are welcome.

Actually the Woodhaven 10 doesn’t have stadium seating, but for non-stadium its really nice. I much prefer it over franklin mills! Of course tho Neshaminy is the best imo.
