With its own entrance on the corner of 11th Street and Filbert Street, the AMC Dine-In Fashion District 8 opened on November 4, 2019. Located on the 3rd floor (top floor) of the shopping mall that used to be known as the Gallery, and is now the Fashion District in City Center East, Philadelphia. The roof of the shopping mall had to be raised to accommodate the theatre. The two largest auditoriums are ‘premium’ experiences, which are the Prime screen (auditorium #5 with 159 seats) and the Dolby screen (auditorium #1 with 148 seats) which has Dolby Vision projection and Dolby Atmos surround sound as well as seats that pulsate. Auditorium #2 has 58 seats, #3 has 105 seats, #4 has 109 seats, #6 has 49 seats, #7 has 103 seats and #8 has 139 seats. All the screens have laser projection, assigned seating, and plush, reclining, heated seats.
This theatre is the 1st multiplex for mainstream movies ever built in downtown Philadelphia, after many years of announcements by various movie theatre operators of other sites that did not come to fruition.
Movie theatres for mainstream movies had been on Market Street east of Broad Street for decades, but with the exception of the Earle Theatre (demolished in 1953) most of those theatres had gone into 2nd or 3rd run by or during the Great Depression. In recent decades, moviegoers attended mainstream movie theatres that were mostly on Market Street and Chestnut Street west of Broad Street until the last large theatre, the Sameric (Boyd) Theatre closed in 2002.
