For the past 27 years, movie goers in the Princeton area have enjoyed shopping at the mall on Route 1 and then catching a move at the United Artists Theater.
People were surprised to go to the theater Friday, only to discover it is now closed. The mall management says it will be replaced by a renovated AMC Stadium Theater.
The new theater will not be open until late 2015. The options for seeing a film on the big screen in the Princeton area are now the Princeton Garden Theater on Nassau Street in downtown Princeton, the Montgomery Cinema on Route 206 in Bell Meade, the Regal Commerce Center Stadium 18 on Route 1 in North Brunswick, the AMC Hamilton 24 on Sloan Avenue in Hamilton.
