15 years ago this year the Best Buy opened where the outers used to be and has done good business even with Amazon ruling the roost.

Were the screens at this theater bigger or the same size as the successor theater near route 80?

Most of the seats in each complex were sloped seating, unlike the stadium seating that its successor has.

On this date 20 years ago, The Phantom Menace came out to record crowds at this theater. Back then, reserved seating was not a thing.

25 years ago today, The Lion King was released and became the biggest animated 2d cartoon of all time. It would get a reissue in the fall holiday season in order to qualify for the oscars, which it did and won some awards.

I remember seeing the original Star Wars for the 1997 re-release at the Outer Theater. Great experience.

In 1977, 1980 It was state of the art, remember AMC was the investor of the newest movie experiance.

Also “what made it great” for me was the architecture / style of theaters built in the late 1970s, by AMC.

Granted the Outers had a remodeling in 1994 I think (maybe 1993? I didn’t start working there until May 1995 / opening day of Braveheart), but the inners looked the same until their closing day in August 1998.

Next month will be 40 years since the Outers opened.

It was replaced by a new 16 screen theater in 2006.
