The AMC Tilghman 8 opened in 1988. It was originally started as a Budco build but finished by AMC when it acquired Budco. It is standard 8 screen plex with four theatres on each side with the concession stand in the middle of the lobby.

The Tilghman 8 and its twin sister the Hampden 8 on the west shore of Harrisburg PA are identical theatres with the same layout, color scheme, and auditorium sizes. Both Tilghman and Hampden were built from the same set of plans and opened within a couple of weeks of each other in July 1988. The Hampden 8 closed in July 2008 when its lease was up due to the overscreening in the Harrisburg PA market. Tilghman is currently on a lease extension but its days appear numbered as well.

The Tilghman Square has recently received a major upgrade, with the outside completely repainted and resigned along with upgrade on the interior as well. It appears the AMC Tilghman 8 will be around for a while.

Looks like the AMC Tilghman Square 8 is undergoing conversion to all recliner seating, according to the AMC website. Right now, only 4 screens are currently open.

It is my understanding that AMC has agreed to sell the Tilghman 8 in order to satisfy the stipulation with the US justice department with regard to its acquisition of Carmike.
