Hampton 4 Theatre

Built for Nicholas George about 1971, the Hampton 3 opened adjacent to the Hampton Plaza Shopping Center.

In 1979, noted theater architect Louis Wiltse was hired to add another auditorium, bring the Hampton’s total seating to over 900.

In 1986, the theater was sold to the AMC chain, which operated it as the AMC Hampton 4 until they shuttered it in 1999.

It is rumored that the quad was haunted by the ghost of a construction worker killed either during the theater’s original construction, or during the addition of the fourth screen.

I have just acquired a set of blueprints from 1979 for the added screen by Wiltse. In the set is 7 sheets, containing things for the expansion, such as floorplans, elevations, roof framing plans, containing much hand written note and sketches.

The address is incorrect and should be 2155 South Rochester Road. After it closed it became a Bed, Bath and Beyond. It’s now a Dunham’s.
