Movie Tavern Coming to Flourtown
Movie Tavern, a theater that combines movies with a bar/restaurant, is set to take over the Acme space at 1844 Bethlehem Pike in Flourtown (just over the border in Springfield Township). According to the Springfield Sun:
The plans for the site where Giant currently operates would have eight screens, 36,000 square feet of space and about 1,000 seats. On average, five screens would operate at a time. Entering the premises, there would be four screens in the front, four in the back and a promenade down the middle. Also at the entrance would be a bar and restaurant area where people can eat and drink before the movie if they choose. This area would have 10 tables with four seats each, plus 10 more seats at the bar itself.
Thus far Movie Tavern has achieved getting a liquor license for the venue, but there are some additional approvals it needs to obtain. Stay tuned.
