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.
