The Marchwood Theater was located in the Marchwood Shopping Center, to the north of Exton. PA. It was opened by Jerry Lewis Cinemas, but later became a XXX Rated theater and screened adult films. It was a large single screen theater. It was possibly closed around 1988.

It became a gym, and now houses several retail units.

Theater showed x rated movies on a big single screen. I dont think it made it out of the 80’s, Was a lot of things after theater closed.. A gym and a salvation army type thrift way.

This was originally a Jerry Lewis theater, but when that franchise died out, it started showing the X-rated stuff. The Lewis people made a big stink about it, if I remember. I lived in Exton from 1955 till 1973, then from 1977 to 1984, and lived just about a mile from Marchwood.

I lived in the Marchwood apartments in the mid 2000s and had no idea that there used to be a skin flick theater right across the street. Hilarious. I would imagine that the families with young children or teenagers in the Marchwood neighborhood subdivision were not happy about a xxx theater within kid-bike-riding distance.

It’s a shame there are no photographs of this theater when it was open.

This was my dad’s theater at the end. He ran this and the Thorndale cinema for about 15 years. I grew up in both of these cinemas.
