The UA Movies at 69th Street is immediately outside Philadelphia (at its western suburbs) in Upper Darby in Delaware County, one block from Septa’s transportation station known as the 69th Street Terminal.
The movie theater is one block from the 69th Street Terminal in a historic shopping corridor that also includes the historic Tower Theatre movie palace (now open only for concerts). A major newspaper ad states that “Free Lighted Parking” is provided.
With more than 2,000 seats, the movie theatre opened on Christmas Day 1992, returning movie theaters to an area that had previously had single screen theaters for decades.
Appropriately enough for a shopping area that has many Art Deco buildings, the theater’s exterior is neo-Deco. There are nine auditoriums, which are “shoebox”-style screening rooms rather than the auditoriums with stadium seating and very large screens found in today’s megaplexes.
It was closed in mid-December 2012. Due to reopen late-July 2015 as a Studio Movie Grill with 9 auditoriums and a bar.
