The Fox Levittown Theatre was located on US Route 1, in the Country Club shopping center, next to Two Guys department store. Across the highway was Reedman’s car dealership. The Eric Penn-Jersey Theatre in Fairless Hills looked similar. The Fox Levittown Theatre was single-screen with change overs and Ashcraft Core Lite 135 carbon arc lamps. The projectors were blue Simplex 35’s.

The main projectionist was Frank Fee, who still lives in the Levittown home that he purchased when new.

The Fox Levittown Theatre was new when it opened May 27, 1967. It was shaped like a big wedge. The screen faced north. The auditorium was parrallel to Route 1.

The Fox Levittown Theatre was at some point twinned and renamed Eric I-95 Twin Theatre, and was later demolished. When I worked there as a relief projectionist, we showed films like “Love Story”, “The Godfather” and “The Getaway” for months on end. We used to eat at the Blue Fountain diner after the show.

The owners were Steve and Remy Fox.

The screen faced towards Philly. So I guess it was south. Crazy Bob, aka: R.R. Madara.

The theatre is long gone. Steve and Remy Fox had several theatres thru out the area. Some were managed by Budco Theatres out of Doylestown, Pa. rg

The Fox Levittown Theatre closed in the late 1980’s as Eric I-95 Twin Theatre. i am guessing Steve & Remmy Fox sold their theatre to Merton Shapiro shortly before Mr. Shapiro sold his entire Sameric Theatres chain to United Artists Theatre Circuit inc.
