Ocean City Tabernacle Closes Moorlyn Theatre, Lists it for Sale

first_imgBy Tim KellyOcean City’s historic Moorlyn Theatre, the first and now last movie house on the island, has closed its doors and is listed for sale, its owner confirmed this week.The Moorlyn is one of the oldest businesses in Ocean City and one of the first attractions on the Boardwalk. It began operations in 1901 as Moore’s Bowling Casino, housing a bowling alley and later a roller skating rink, according to the Ocean City Historical Society.The Moorlyn achieved its niche in town history in 1921 when a 200-seat theatre replaced the roller rink. The following year the property was renamed the Moorlyn Theatre, and save several interruptions in between previous ownership changes, it has been showing films ever since.Today however, the iconic property’s future is uncertain. The Ocean City Tabernacle, owner of the property since 2012, has listed it for sale with an asking price of $1.1 million, according to a Tabernacle official.“It wasn’t working out for us,” said Virginia A. Weber, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “We closed it permanently and we’re looking for a buyer.”The Tabernacle had renamed the property the Moorlyn Family Theatre and developed a programming mix of live stage performances, first-run films and classic movies from the theatre’s glory days. Concerts, stage plays, magic and comedy shows were among the live entertainment offerings. In this incarnation, the Moorlyn Family Theatre more closely resembled its original mixed use, which included Vaudeville and concerts.According to Weber, a lack of patronage was not behind the theatre’s closing but rather a full plate of building operations.“We had too many buildings to manage,” she said.Nevertheless, the Moorlyn was not immune to the trend of films being delivered digitally on smart television and handheld devices, which has eroded the number of people willing to go to theatres nationwide.In recent decades three other boardwalk theatres ceased operations showing movies. The Strand, which is now the home of Manco & Manco pizza; the Surf, since reborn as the Surf Mall; and the Village (demolished) left the Moorlyn as the lone remaining place to catch a flick on the boardwalk.Weber said the sale was being handled by the Linwood-based firm, Foresite Commercial Realty and the agent, Samantha Roessler. Efforts to reach Roessler were unsuccessful on Thursday.Earlier in the week prior to confirmation of the closing and pending sale, several people walking the boards waxed nostalgic about the movie palace.“I used to love coming here as a kid,” said “Boone” McCamey, a lifelong Ocean City resident. “I would ride my bike to the movie theatre.  How many kids have that opportunity?  Especially today, it just doesn’t happen.  But I would jump on my bike, grab a slice of pizza and go watch a movie.  It was great.”The Moorlyn marquee as it appears today (photo credit Ocean City Events and Activites on Pinterest)“It’s a shame (so many boardwalk theatres have closed),” said Marilyn Lippincott of Cinnaminson, Burlington County, who was strolling the boards Tuesday in front of the Moorlyn.  “There were (many more theatres) here at one time and you could choose from a wide variety of films. It was especially good on a rainy day when you couldn’t go to the beach.”The first films shown at the Moorlyn were silent movies. An organist provided musical accompaniment.  According to Wikipedia, Hollywood was producing sheet music for use with films and some big city theatres employed entire orchestras for this purpose.By the 1930s, the technology to make movies with sound became widely used and the so-called “talkies” made silent films nearly extinct. The Moorlyn kept pace with the changes and packed in large crowds.A few years earlier, a major fire ripped through the boardwalk, destroying much of it as well as many of the businesses. Somehow the Moorlyn escaped damage.  The boardwalk was then rebuilt atop concrete pilings and relocated a few dozen yards closer to the ocean.  The Moorlyn itself was physically moved.  It was placed on rails and dragged to its present location by horse-drawn teams.Over the next three decades the theatre thrived, bringing great films from Hollywood’s golden age to large audiences of vacationers and residents.However, the 1970s rise of TV made the first big dent in movie audiences. The Moorlyn’s auditorium was made into two theatres and in the 80s into four, according to the website  Thus, the historic theatre kept pace with an industry-wide trend of multi-screen theatres, also known as multiplexes.  The Moorlyn survived this way for a time, although it closed for several periods in between changes in ownership.Approximately 10 years ago the theatre took on its final structural reconfiguration as storefronts, which now include Kohr Bros., Starbucks and Verizon Wireless were built on the boardwalk side of the building.  The iconic Moorlyn marquee and ticket box office were removed.  A new art deco style marquee inspired by the one it replaced, was installed on the Moorlyn Terrace side.  A residence was added on a second story level above the storefronts.During this period, the facility was owned and operated by the Frank’s Theatres chain, which eventually sold it to the Tabernacle.

Berg is the Word: USC’s biggest flaw is the same as it was in 2018

first_imgThere was cornerback Iman Marshall’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that sealed a loss to Cal.  USC also missed out on a scoring opportunity after freshman cornerback Chris Steele recovered a fumble in Washington territory early in the fourth quarter. USC had needed a spark, something to break the cycle of incompetence its offense had displayed for most of the game, and this appeared to be it … until St. Brown picked up an offensive pass interference penalty for blocking downfield, setting the Trojans up for a glum three-and-out. There was quarterback JT Daniels’ horrible decision to throw deep on a fourth-quarter interception against UCLA, a game in which Bruin running back Joshua Kelley ran practically unabated for 289 yards and two touchdowns as defenders missed tackle after tackle and assignment after assignment.  It’s time to find someone who can restore a culture of accountability at USC. That is, until USC went to Seattle to face No. 17 Washington Saturday. The Trojans lost 28-14 as third-string redshirt junior quarterback Matt Fink threw three interceptions in his first collegiate start, but the game was closer than the final score indicated. USC had a lot of chances in the second half to pull even with the Huskies but fell into the same bad habits that afflicted it in 2018. On that topic, offensive coordinator Graham Harrell faces some questions for his play-calling on USC’s last truly threatening drive of the game. With 6:29 remaining, USC had first-and-goal inside the Washington 10 and had a chance to make things interesting with a score and a stop. USC ran three straight times before Harrell called for a corner route to freshman wide receiver Drake London at the back corner of the end zone, hardly the ideal route or target against such a deep secondary and with a bevy of proven pass-catchers.  What plagued USC football throughout a dismal 5-7 campaign a year ago was discipline. No team in the country saw more talented players miss so many assignments, pick up so many penalties and set their team back with so many boneheaded mistakes. The biggest swing in momentum came in the third quarter after a long run from junior tailback Stephen Carr helped move the Trojans inside the Washington 11-yard line. Fink dropped back and targeted senior wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. on a slant, never seeing junior defensive back Elijah Molden dropping into coverage. Two plays later, multiple Trojan defenders over-pursued on a run play, allowing junior tailback Salvon Ahmed to sprint 89 yards untouched for a score that put Washington up 28-7. There is no possible excuse for USC overcommitting on a back as explosive as Ahmed. Some might say Fink’s interception can be chalked up to the inexperience and inability of a third-stringer, which would make sense if Daniels and freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis hadn’t made almost identical bad decisions against Fresno State and BYU, respectively. Missing underneath defenders has been a trend in the Trojans’ otherwise successful passing game this season, and with three different quarterbacks displaying issues with it, it can only be attributed to poor coaching.center_img It has been clear for a while now that the team needs a culture change, and it appears a pivot to Harrell’s Air Raid offense is not enough. Head coach Clay Helton has had well over a year to fix the discipline issues that have cost the program not only wins, but its reputation.  There was wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown’s fumble at the opposing 15-yard line against Notre Dame just before the half, giving the Irish all the momentum in a tightly-contested game.  Aidan Berg is a junior writing about sports. He is also an associate managing editor for Daily Trojan. His column, “Berg is the Word,” runs every Monday. Richmond’s outburst reflected the feelings of many USC fans during the last year and a half. Despite some of its issues in recruiting, the program still has too much talent to lose the games it does. The most frustrating part of Saturday’s loss was that it was a winnable game, and yet anyone familiar with this team could feel pretty much from kickoff that the Trojans would do everything they could to shoot themselves in the foot. Every time, you could either feel the mistake coming or knew that it spelled doom for the Trojans’ chances in that game. Often, it was both. The Trojans’ effort was littered with these ill-timed mistakes. The team had eight penalties for 80 yards, many of which came in the form of false starts on the offensive line, which had been surprisingly solid to open the season. The crowd noise at a rollicking Husky Stadium gave the unit fits; at one point, redshirt senior offensive tackle Drew Richmond, a repeat offender Saturday, got so frustrated after one of his false starts that he yelled at Fink even though the quarterback was using claps rather than his voice to start the play. It was a problem I thought had been addressed at least a little this season. Through four games, the defensive line’s stinginess was one of the Trojans’ highlights, and the offensive line was doing a much better job. Sure, there were some conduct penalties, but one of them (redshirt freshman tailback Markese Stepp dapping up Reggie Bush after a game-sealing touchdown run against then-No. 10 Utah) was pretty great, and the team seemed to feed off the emotion that drew those flags rather than letting them derail its progress. As the defense flew around and the offense decimated defenders through the air in victories over Stanford and Utah, I kept waiting for the telltale flags and miscues that always seemed destined to sink this team. They never came. Even the BYU game was more about the Cougars’ game plan than USC’s errors. last_img read more
