Located near Devon, PA., in the Gateway Shopping Center. Opened in the 1960’s, a nice, comfortable, small lobby and food area. Like a lot of newer Budco theatres at the time.

It was later taken over by AMC and was renovated in the 1970’s. It was closed following a fire started in a trash can in the 1990’s

Went to one movie here (“Risky Business”) on a visit to the area in September 1983. A weeknight, and I recall the theater being pretty empty, but the film was the perfect thing at the time, and there was something comfortable and enjoyable about the place. Sorry to hear of its end.

The 3rd Screen section has been demolished back for store space.

The front part was rebuilt after the fire, and now occupied by Panera Bread.

The original auditorium is still there, occupied by Main Line CrossFit.
