Demolition Underway at Towne 16 Movie Theatre in Egg Harbor Twp., NJ
If you were hoping for something or someone to take over the vacant Towne 16 Theatre in Egg Harbor Township, those hopes appear to have been dashed as bulldozers have moved in.
The theater, located off Black Horse Pike by Boscov's, has been closed for a few years now.
There was some speculation that the once-thriving cineplex would be purchased and operate under new ownership. There were also rumors that it might be transformed into more of a Dave & Buster's-type entertainment complex and maybe even feature a bowling alley.
But all those possibilities were for naught. Once we notice fencing going up around the old theatre, we figured it had been marked for demolition. The appearance of a backhoe on the property today confirmed that.
We caught some photos of the outer structure being torn down, metal beam by metal beam.
