The Moorlyn is back, complete with the Art Deco marquee as featured in the video attached with this article from the Atlantic City Press.

All 4 of the Moorlyn screens will be functional for the Memorial Day weekend 2013, digital projectors and being fitted for multi-purpose use.

Joe Vogel – I’m just now seeing your link to BOXOFFICE and the pictures of the Moorlyn. That is So Cool! I remember that entrance. The stainless steel had been painted white (as you see in my picture at the top of this page)and I kind of thought that it was probably Stainless originally. Very cool photos. Believe it or not, I have the one of the original neon “O"s from the MOORLYN sign in that art deco style. Thanks for the link.

It is now owned by the Ocean City Tabernacle. A newspaper article from a couple months ago stated that the Tabernacle would use a few screens for family movies.

A small photo of the Moorlyn’s facade and a slightly larger photo of one wall if the lobby can be seen at the lower left on this page of the March 7, 1936, issue of Boxoffice. The marquee in the 1936 photo was still there in the 1981 photo linked above, but it is gone in the more recent photo.

For sale, asking $5.5 million. The Strand is also listed at the same price. Frank Theatres still plans to operate both theaters for the 2011 summer season. Video story from NBC Philadelphia here.

i was just down there tuesday looking at some theater options, i run the broadway in pitman but the movies are slowly fading away despite my efforts to the live theater

Some years the Moorlyn has stayed open all winter, other times it hasn’t. The other Ocean City theater, the Strand, has been seasonal only for as long as I can remember.

There are seven pages of photos of the Moorlyn Theater at this link. You can view them as a slideshow, or click on the next button for each page. After looking at the photos, I agree with Ken. This building is demolished.

Here is an undated photo. Atlantic Book Shops was a chain with stores in Atlantic City and Ocean City. I bought cheap sci-fi paperbacks at the AC store for years:

NY Times September 7, 1925

OCEAN CITY, N.J., Sept. 6 — Ocean City had a new experience at midnight tonight when the Plaza and the Moorlyn moving picture houses opened for business. The owners of the theatres consulted with City Solicitor Boswell, who told them there could be no legal objection to shows starting Monday morning.
