The Eric Theatre in Pennsauken, NJ was built by Sameric Corp. of Philadelphia (Sam & Mert Shapiro), as a single screen with 1,500 seats on August 17, 1965.
On December 2,1971, Eric II, a second theatre, in a separate building, opened with 900 seats. In 1977, the original building was divided in two, with one narrow auditorium and the bigger auditorium having 1,100 seats. The original theatre was then renamed Eric II & III, and what had opened as Eric II was renamed Eric I. Around 1983, two more auditoriums were built, and a new central lobby connected the two existing buildings.
The Sameric chain was sold to United Artists in 1988.
“I, John Daggett, was the manager from 1967 to 1977. There were so many people I worked with, I would like to hear from Dick Kane (GM), Bill Bashista (DM), Bill Sarris.”
