Nearby Theaters

The Cinema I Springfield Theatre was opened by Budco Theatres on September 25, 1964. This theatre was located on Baltimore Pike and Sproul Road, in Springfield.

In 1975, Budco twinned this theatre.

In January 1992, AMC Theatres (successors to Budco Theatres) closed this theatre, mainly due to the close proximity of the recently opened AMC Marple 10 Theatre, which was a mile west of the Springfield on Sproul Road.

George, you are correct. i just looked on Historic Aerial, and the east wall of Office depot was right near where the west wall of the AMC Springfield Twin/Budco Cinema I Springfield was.

Cinema I Springfield (AKA AMC Springfield Twin) was never owned by William Goldman Theatres. The photo mentions Budco Quality Theatre when it opened on 9/25/1964.
