The Eric Barclay Square Twin Theatre opened between May and July 1974. I have a photocopy of a Philadelphia Inquirer movie listing from 8/1/1974 that list the Eric Barclay Square Twin showing “The Exorcist” and “The Sting”.

United Artists Barclay Square Twin was closed by 1994, a year or two after the opening of United Artists 69th Street 9 Theatre.

This theater was in the corner building of an L-shaped shopping center (Barclay Square). The
screen were in the ‘shoebox’ style popularized by the AMC chain and were relatively small. The
rooms were cinderblock construction with long hanging blue curtains and a slight rake to the
seats.

Probably more responsible for it’s demise were the multiplexes that opened at Granite Run Mall
and the Springfield Marple.
