Viewing: Photo | Street View

The AMC Granite Run 8 is west of Philadelphia in the suburb of Delaware County. It is located at the Route 1 side of the Granite Run Mall, just south of Media. The auditoriums are not stadium seated, but do have digital sound. In 1997, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the theatre had a seating capacity for 1,991.

In 2014, it was announced that the mall would be demolished with new retail space replacing it, and a new multiplex replacing this one.

Most AMCs I know of opened in the 80’s, but the original mall opened in 1974. Down the road is AMC Marple 10, in a plaza with Linens ‘n Things (founded 1990), Circuit City (founded 1988), and OfficeMax (founded 1988). Woodhaven Mall in Bensalem opened in 1973, and still has the original AMC theater. There was a very old AMC in Delran NJ, now long gone.

Was this theater a bargain cinema in the mid-1990s? I’m certain I’ve been there a few times, but I might be mixing it up with another theater.
