The Eric Twin Theatre was opened February 19, 1972 and was operated by Budco. It closed in May 1987. The theatre was built in Brookhaven, in Delaware County, in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I will try and take some pictures of it. It still has the poster frame and box office sign. It’s now a beer store. It’s in a shopping center.

In 1970 and a company builds a Twin Theatre,must have been one of the last BIg twin theatres built.Don’t get me wrong,I wish that would have been as large as theatres got.A 20 plex? Don’t like “walmart moviegoing”.

If this theatre was called the Eric Twin, would it not have been a Sameric Theatre???? Sameric Theatres were taken over by United Artists about the time this theatre closed if my memory serves me correctly at which time a number of Eric Theatres were closed.
