As the first large building for recreation on the Ocean City, NJ boardwalk, this opened around 1901 as a bowling alley named Moore’s Bowling Casino. It appears to have been the main attraction on the boardwalk in those early years.
It changed to a movie theater in 1923 named Moorlyn Theatre and has been one ever since. It was divided in two in 1970 and into four in 1989. Closed for a while, the original building was mostly demolished and rebuilt in a different style. The theatre became one of only two theaters on the Ocean City Boardwalk.
It was operated by the Frank Theatres chain from April 2013, it closed temporarily for the Winter season each year. It was taken over by the Ocean City Tabernacle and renamed Moorlyn Famiily Theatre. They closed it in February 2018 and it was pu up ‘For Sale’.
