Taken over by William Goldman Theaters Inc., it was refurbished in 1935 to the plans of architectural firm Fleisher & Stephens. In the late-1960’s and early-1970’s it was operated by Art Carduner as one of Philadelphia’s very few venues for art and foreign films. It was closed on November 6, 1977 with David Chiang in “Triple Irons” & Billy Dee Williams in “Hit!”.
