The AMC Neshaminy 24 Theatres opened in September 1998 at the Neshaminy Mall in the Philadelphia suburbs as one of two theatres with this design, the other being in Spain. Costing $11 million to construct, when it opened it was the largest multiplex movie theatre in Pennsylvania.

This state of the art megaplex has 24 stadium seating theaters with digital surround sound. At the main entry to the mall, are the four largest auditoriums. Originally auditoriums 1 and 24 had about 600 seats and 61 feet wide screens. Auditorium 1 was redone and reopened in August 2008 as a digital IMAX theatre with 529 seats. Auditoriums 2 and 23 have about 400 seats and huge screens. Auditoriums 7 thru 18have fairly large screens. The smallest auditoriums, with about 100 or fewer seats are 3 to 6 and 19 to 22. In 2007, the theatre’s first digital projection arrived for the movie “Zodiac”. As of April 2011, about half the auditoriums had been converted to digital projection.

3 concession stands serve patrons, as the two Metros are located by auditoriums # 1, 2, 23 and 24, and the Uptown is located by auditoriums 7 to 18. When all three concession stands are open, they can serve 2,500 people an hour. This theater replaced a previous AMC Theatre in the mall, the AMC Premier Twin Theatre, which was closed in around 1992/1993. The nearest movie theatres are at Oxford Valley and Franklin Mills.

This theater has been voted by the people of Bucks county (via the Bucks County Courier Times) to be the best theater in the county from 1999 thru 2005. It has been one of the most busiest and profitable movie theatres in the nation since it opened.

business is still very brisk at the AMC Neshaminy. Today whilst attending an early screening of “The Master” (9/22/12) the smallish theatre was quite full, but audience not all that well behaved. It might be time for Bruce the Shark from “Finding Nemo” to really show up.

There was also a preview screening of “Hotel Transylvania” going on in one of the bigger screens. I have to admit I was a bit confused by the overzealous security staff with metal detecting wands I thought AMC merged with the TSA for a moment.

Instead of the cutesy wootsey animated segments at the start of movies ( which seem to be lost on people) it might be time to have someone address the audience either in person or via recorded segment as to how to behave when attending a movie.

Anyone know if projectors here are 2k or 4k? Lawrence of Arabia will show Thursday only but if I attend, I want the 4k.

Had a bit of a chuckle at this morning’s screening of “Jack the Giant Slayer” in “Digital IMAX 3D. Crowd was sparse, the mind numbing promo fest better known as "first look” is coming to a thankful conclusion, the trailers are about to begin.

A voice cries out from the front of the auditorium “If you’ve got 3D glasses in the plastic packaging, come out and get the right glasses”. Apparently they gave out “regular” 3D glasses instead of the AMC Digital IMAX 3D ones. It was quite humorous, but they did fix the mistake. Just something to point out for posterity.

There’s a “Croods” no talking/texting promo they are running now. Unfortunately it’s lost in the plethora of commercials that are run. No wonder no one pays attention.

Kudos to the staff of Neshaminy 24. Quite a plethora of Philadelphia region residents chose to celebrate the birth of our country with either Johnny Depp, Kevin Hart, Gru and his minions or many of the other choices.

They were lined up deep down the Neshaminy Mall and crowds on either sides of the gated entry ways. This was the early morning shows.

The cashiers kept it moving, a second concession stand opened to handle the crowds. Well done, hopefully they’re able to keep it together for the night and weekend shows. I think that they will. Well done!

Went to see “American Hustle” on New Years Day and while I was excited that I would be seeing the film in one of the “big” rooms (aud #24) I was a bit disappointed by the presentation. While the digital projection was razor sharp, the screen masking was incorrect. I don’t know why, but the masking was set at approx 2.0 to 1 as opposed to the proper 2.40 to 1 (it was very obvious as you could see the projected image through the masking). I have seen many 2.40 to 1 scope films in aud 24 and the masking was always correct. I let the staff know…but of course nothing was done (I don’t think they would know the difference)…hopefully just a bad day.
