The Sameric Corp of Philadelphia built the Eric Allentown as a single screen. As the photo originally saved by the Sameric Corp shows “Oliver” on the marquee, that 1968 movie likely opened the theatre on June 25, 1969. Eventually, there were additions to the building. On June 28, 1974 there were a total of 2 auditoriums, by the late-1970’s, three screens, and by the early-1980’s, 5 screens.
United Artists operated the theatre after acquiring all the Eric theatres from Sameric Corp. The theatre closed in 1999 after the Carmike Cinemas Allentown-16 opened in that year, but the original and newer Eric buildings have since been reused for other purposes.
