The Susquehanna Bank Center is an outdoor amphitheater/indoor theater complex in Camden, New Jersey, United States, located in the Camden Waterfront entertainment district on the Delaware River across from Philadelphia.

History[edit]

The Susquehanna Bank Center opened in June 1995 as the Blockbuster-Sony Music Entertainment Centre (or E-Centre). In 2001, the amphitheater was renamed the Tweeter Center at the Waterfront. Susquehanna Bank purchased the naming rights in 2008.

Facility[edit]

The year-round facility serves as a 25,000 capacity outdoor amphitheater during the summer months which features a lawn with video screens, computerized sound enhancement, and a clear view of the Philadelphia skyline, Delaware River, and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge to the northwest. In the fall and winter months, the Susquehanna Bank Center converts to a fully enclosed, climate-controlled, flexible-capacity theater for up to 7,000 people offering a variety of concerts, Broadway theatrical productions, and family entertainment.

The Susquehanna Bank Center is adjacent to the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial, Wiggins Park, and the Adventure Aquarium.
