Destiny 12

Viewing: Photo | Street View

When the Independence Mall was closed and extensively remodeled in the mid-1990’s, and the original Eric Twin closed and was torn down, the Destinta Theater was opened in May 1999, this time being incorporated into the design of the open-air mall, unlike the stand-alone Eric Twin.

When it originally opened, they offered a card which would be punched for each ticket purchased; after the twelfth ticket, the holder would receive a ticket for a free movie. This was eventually phased out.

The decor is at least in the auditoriums, very modern, with bright blues and purples and blacks predominant and exhibited via modern shapes hanging on the walls. Sound was very good as of 2003 – in fact, it often had the best audio of many theatres in the Trenton/Philadelphia area.

It was closed on December 21, 2012

According to yesterday’s Times of Trenton the theater is up and running on a “soft opening” basis as the operators work the bugs out. No online version of the story is available.

Since 2011, this theater has been known as the Destiny 12 after it was sold by Destinta in 2011. It was declared by Hamilton Township officials to be unsafe for human occupancy and closed at least temporarily on Dec. 21, 2012. View article. It had apparently been running as a discount operation.
