Ghosts At First Job


My first place of employment was a REGAL Entertainment movie theatre, the one in Moorestown NJ to be specific. I had quite a few experiences while I was working there. I walked into theatre 7 to clean after a movie had ended to find the screen brightly lit, but the rest of the theatre was pitch black. I high tailed it out of there until the lights came on.

Again while I was on floor/cleaning duty I had come out of theatre 3 and was headed towards theatre 2, just diagonal of 3, when I saw a blonde man leaning on the wall between the "satellite" concession stand (a much smaller stand up between theatres 2 and 4) and theatre 2. I was very startled when he vanished (I assumed he was a customer).

I also regularly saw shadow people in the room behind the concession stand.

At the time I was working almost exclusively in the concession stand and it was a busy set (batch of movies starting) and I was running about getting drinks when I felt something behind me. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a black shadow behind me, but when I turned around it vanished.

One night I was in the backroom (behind the concession stand) washing dishes after closing when I saw a black figure walk right through the back wall O.o I know it wasn't the shadow of a co-worker because it was REALLY black and the door to enter the backroom was loud when opened, I hadn't heard it open...

Does anyone know what's going on there?

Yes, there's a Moorestown, NJ.

I did mention my experiences to a few co-workers, but no one else knew what had happened either. I was told (didn't experience) that there was the spirit of a man in the projection room as well.

Oh first jobs are scary enough. ANYWAY: I googled "haunted Moorestown,NJ". I found info about haunted places for Morristown,NJ. Is that what you meant? Or is there a Moorestown,NJ?

I found this link:
From the way I'm reading it an entire ESTATE sat on Moorestown...I'm sorry I'm not familiar with New Jersey

Did you ever mention the things you saw to co-workers?
