Try as hard as they did to get rid of this, AMC has it back again after the purchase of Carmike. :)

The Hampden 8 theatres were the twin sister (meaning built at the same time in 1988 and with the same plans) as the AMC Tilghman 8 in Allentown PA. The Tilghman 8 was just recently remodled into a upscale bar/recline-o-plex. However in order to purchase Carmike the justice department has made AMC sell the Tilghman 8 in Allentown. So not only has AMC has gotten the Hampden 8 back but at the same time was forced to sell the now more upscale Tilghman 8.

Which means this building (like the former AMC Tilghman 8 Theatre) was designed by the former Budco Theatres chain, but built by AMC Theatres

Now we got Tilghman back as an AMC
