Amc Concord Mall 2, Dec 25 1999

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Called the Concord Mall 2, it was not part of the shopping mall but part of another building in its parking lot. The building/strip mall also contained a Pathmark grocery store. The Concord Mall Cinema II opened February 11, 1970.

The Pathmark eventually moved across the Concord Pike/202 to another strip mall and the theater eventually closed down. The strip is now home to Best Buy (on the side where the theater was), Ulta and Barnes & Noble (on the grocery store side).

Saw superman 2 here in summer of 81.. It’s now a best buy.. Theater lasted until like mid 90’s… it was like an arthouse theater towards the end. Amityville 2 played here in 1982…

Academy Award winning director Luke Matheny applied for an Usher position at the Concord Mall II in 1993. He was not hired and had to work at the nearby Subway restaurant. He did however see “Joe versus the Volcano” here which was an inspiration for his 2010 film “God of Love” which won the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film.

I must have seen dozens of movies at this cinema. The last time I was anywhere near this place it was still a theater and it was still next door to the Pathmark. Wow, I feel old now…

Saw many films here from 1972 up until some point in the 1980s when I went away to college. My 1st recollection was seeing Mike Nichols' Day of the Dolphin here in 1972. Little did I know I would meet him 40 years later backstage at a theater I was performing in at in NYC. Other memorable films I saw at the Concord Mall Cinema, if I’m remembering correctly: The Doberman Gang, The Odessa File, The Great Gatsby, the Wilmington premiere of Funny Lady (w/ a champagne fountain in the lobby!), The Day of the Locust, Three Days of the Condor, The Bad News Bears, Marathon Man, The Last Tycoon, King Kong, Black Sunday, The Deep, Looking for Mr. Goodbar, Days of Heaven, Atlantic City, Ordinary People, Raiders of the Lost Ark (?). I recall Chinatown played here in 1974 but I didn’t see it at the time. My mom took me to see The Godfather Part II here at my insistence — I was 11 years old.
