First it was the remodel and now, this theatre is making headlines for the wrong reasons as a couple with down’s syndrome is claiming they were mistreated during their visit to the AMC Marlton 8.

Video the the KYW TV 3 story is included in link below

I was just quoting Angelo Cataldi to at least give some manner of update on this theater.

Hopefully I’ll be able to get there myself soon and post a more personal review and photos.

In reply to hdtv267, HD TV at its best is said to be equivalent to 16mm, so yes, 2k & 4k digital film projection should be better than TV even if perhaps not always up to 35mm standards. And, yes, I’d look forward to a report in writing- and photos if someone would, as to these changes.

This theatre has opened as was discussed this morning (2/25/13) on the WIP Morning show. Program host Angelo Cataldi raved about the new seating, digital projection system (the picture is clearer than the best high definition television out there)

He did go on quite a bit about a scene in “Side Effects” though

Hopefully someone will get out there and get some photographs to post up here soon.

The AMC Marlton 8 is currently being renovated, with new comfortable reclining seats, and Coca Cola’s Freestyle soda system, which has 100+ choices of Coca Cola products.

The Marlton 8 began construction in 1982 around November and was completed by May 1983. I was a Projectionist/Engineer/ Marketing manager here from 1989 to 1998 when I transferred to help open our 24 plex at Neshaminy. I stayed with AMC until late 2006. And no, I really never believed house 7 was haunted.

When I was a kid, I remember seeing “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai” here. I seem to recall that it was the ONLY theater in the Philly area showing it. My dad took me on a Saturday afternoon and we were among the SIX people watching the movie. The other four were wearing Japanese-style headbands.

Kind of a surreal memory.

I remember seeing Saving Private Ryan there, and, it is still one of the most emotional movie experiences I have ever had. It will never be as good as it was on the big screen. I remember crying, and the whole theather standing in ovation at the end.
