PA (Philadelphia):
  • Andorra Theatre (Closed 2002 as AMC Andorra 8 Theatre)
  • Goldman Theatre (Closed 1984 as Budco Goldman Twin Theatre)
  • Midtown Theatre (Closed Late 1990's as AMC Midtown Twin Theatre)
  • Orleans Theatre (Closed 2006 as AMC Orleans 8 Theatre)
  • Regency Theatre (Closed 1987 as AMC Regency Twin Theatre)
PA:
Hiway Theatre (York)

Northside Twin (Miami)

And then I realized I also have the 1972 and 1973 editions of International Motion Picture Almanac, which both show the following (1973 is the last edition listing William Goldman Theatres, and I assume they duplicated 1972's data based on having no response to the questionnaire):

quote:
Goldman, William, Theatres, Inc

Goldman Theatre Bldg., 15th & Chestnut Sts., Philadelphia, Pa. 19102. Tel.: LO 7-7500.
WILLIAM GOLDMAN, chmn. of bd.

PENNSYLVANIA - BRYN MAWR: Bryn Mawr; CHAMBERSBURG: Southgate; HANOVER: Hanover; PHILADELPHIA: Orleans, Esquire, Goldman, Midtown, Randolph, New Locust, Andorra, Regency; POTTSTOWN: Towne, Fox; READING: Astor, Strand; UPPER PROVIDENCE TOWNSHIP: Hiway D.I.; YORK: Hi-way.
FLORIDA - MIAMI: Northside I & II.
NEW JERSEY - OAKLYN: Ritz Theatre.

The 1974 edition looks like this:

quote:
Budco Goldman Theatres, Inc.

Goldman Theatre Bldg., 15th & Chestnut Sts., Philadelphia, Pa. 19102. Tel.: LO 7-7500.
Claude J. Schlanger, president.

PENNSYLVANIA - BRYN MAWR: Bryn Mawr; CHAMBERSBURG: Southgate; PHILADELPHIA: Orleans, Esquire, Goldman, Midtown, Andorra, Regency, City Line Center, Suburban Ardmore, Anthony Wanyne; UPPER PROVIDENCE TOWNSHIP: Hiway D.I.; YORK: Hi-way.
FLORIDA - MIAMI: Northside I & II.
NEW JERSEY - OAKLYN: Ritz Theatre.
