CAMDEN CITY, NJ (CNBNEWSNET) The Stanley Movie theater was one of the most popular places to take your family or your date for an evening of entertainment. Great memories of the plush red seats that reclined, an upstairs balcony for smooching with your girlfriend, and the aroma of popcorn being popped. In the mid-1950s students from St. Mary's Grammar School were bussed from the school in Gloucester City to that theater to see Ben Hur and the 10 Commandments starring Charleton Heston. 

In the video below Allen F. Haus, the author of the book South Jersey Movie House, talks about the once-great movie theaters of Camden, New Jersey.
