It built the first “Twin” theatre in the United States in 1966 and developed the Towne 16 Stadium Cinema in 1986, which was one of the earliest Mega-Plex Cinemas in New Jersey which reintroduced stadium seating backs. Frank is dedicated to providing a movie-going experience which is first class, currently operating 256 screens in 25 theatres located across the East Coast of the United States.
