Frank Theatres Towne Stadium 16

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Owned by Frank Theaters, this theater went through drastic renovations in 2004 due to a popper fire. The Towne was originally two complexes, I and II, but when renovated it was all worked into one. In winter of 2005, due to many, many, many projector problems, the Franks finally installed brand new projectors and the booth looks beautiful.

The box office is located outside but when it gets cold, they put it in the guest services desk. The concession stand is long with five registers. The lobby features a full arcade and clean bathrooms.

I remember when it was the Towne Twin. It opened in Oct. 1969. The booth had Super Simplex & Peerless arc lamps. It was the first time I saw automated change overs. I must have watched Easy Rider a thousand times! It became the Towne 4 in 1973. That was the first time I ran platters. Below is a pic I took in September 1978. The next day the peeless came out to be replaced with Christe Xenolites. The sound system was University 35 watt mono.

I saw War of the Worlds here a few years back, and can still remember how great the sound was for such an old theater. The picture was horrible, though.

I took my seven year old niece to see “Pocahontas” at the Towne in the mid 1990s. It was a matinee in the middle of the summer. I think every kid in Atlantic County was at the theater that afternoon. It was a zoo.
