Now we’re in State College, Pennsylvania at the Cinema 5. Great name! This Cinema even has a marquee.

Although we’re on the UA King of Prussia Stadium 16 page, we’re looking at the Cinemark 20 in Moosic, PA. Maybe Daniel is taking a cinema tour of Pennsylvania.

Nice photo and a nice looking theatre but I have no idea why Cinemark 18 in Tarentum, PA is on the UA King of Prussia Stadium 16 site. Guess Daniel got a little confused!

Again, no marquee! Guess you need to call before you leave home. And where is the box office?

Don’t know what these are but I suppose, since they say EXIT, they’re exit doors. I guess from theatre 5. I guess the EXIT sign near the floor is in case of heavy smoke, (smoke rises).

Sorry Jeff, but I guess Lou’s not going to answer your question. I wish I could!

Does anyone know what make and model theater organ was in the Girard Theatre and when it was removed? Also, what happened to it.

Thanks!

This theater opened as the New Colonial Theatre on July 4th, 1922. It replaced a smaller Colonial Theatre on 3rd Street.

I thought after six months someone would have something to share, but I guess not?

TheALAN commented about 333 Market Theatre on Jul 19, 2014 at 2:21 pm

“Boxoffice Magazine — July 11, 1953 (page 41) Philadelphia — The premises, 333 Market St., site of the former 333 Theatre, were sold by the Stanley-Warner Management Corp. to L. M. Blitz for $90,000. Blitz leased the property to Fisch’s Parking Places for 15 years . . . ”

The site of the former theater (now demolished) is now a part of 399 Market Street, a five-story office building in Old City that was built in 1977.

If anyone has a photo or photos of the 333 Theatre, it would be appreciated if they could share. And also, in what style was the the theater designed?

Although closed, and sold, in 1953, we are not sure if the theater was demolished that year. If someone could answer that, that would also be appreciated. Thanks!

What is that block called Mike, web sence? Maybe Cinema Treasures should use it. They seem to get plenty of stupid ass comments!

TheALAN commented about 1935 world premiere of To Catch a Thief on Jul 8, 2014 at 6:09 pm

It was on August 2nd in 1955 when Cary Grant and Philadelphia’s own Grace Kelly appeared in person at the Translux Theatre for the world premiere of “To Catch A Thief” (1955 Paramount). The theater would not become Eric’s Place until 1970.

TheALAN commented about New Penn Theatre on Jul 6, 2014 at 9:07 pm

Who was the architect and in what style was this theater designed? Although new housing now occupies the site, what occupied the site for the 50+ years that followed the demolition of the theater?

TheALAN commented about Elite Theatre on Jul 6, 2014 at 12:14 pm

The full address is 2714-18 W. Girard Avenue (19120). Leroy Berman Rothschild, BSA, AIA (1886-1935) of Philadelphia was the architect. The theater was renovated in 1926 with a Wurlitzer theater organ opus 1462 style “D” installed on September 28th. A one-story building (Luxx Nail Spa llo) now stands at 2714 W. Girard Ave. 2716-18 is surface parking.

On the PAB site, under images, one image does exist although the quality is poor. If someone has a better photo, it would be appreciated if they would share! Also, in what style was the theater designed and in what year was the building demolished?

TheALAN commented about Cox Theatre on Jun 25, 2014 at 2:25 pm

Thank’s Einstein! — called the Perry Street Theater . . . It’s probably a safe assumption that Perry Street Theatre . . . was probably located on Perry Street. Where on Perry Street was this theater located? And why is there no map? Actually, except for the reference to March 11, 1916, the comment offers no information!

NO — WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE BEVERLY THEATRE! We are talking about the BLACK ROCK THEATRE — the subject of this page. These are two different theaters on two different blocks — three blocks apart. And how the hell did the HI-WAY get into this? It’s not even in Bridgeport, CT. It’s in Stratford, CT. Talk about getting confused!

TheALAN commented about Beverly Theatre on Jun 24, 2014 at 6:45 pm

The building at that address is the former Beverly Theatre. And yes, it has been heavily modified although some elements of the theater do remain. The theater opened with a double feature — “The Rope of Sand” (1949) starring Burt Lancaster & “Illegal Entry: Formula for Fear” (1949) starring Sabryn Gene’t. The theater was designed in Mid-Century Modern (mid-20th century) style. If anyone knows who the architect is for this theater, please share? Thanks!
