The RKO Broad Theatre was a neighborhood showplace located on South Broad Street in South Trenton. It had a small balcony which has since been enclosed and made into offices. The theatre opened in the early-1920’s and was the largest neighborhood theatre in the city.
It closed in 1960 and was purchased by the Catholic Youth Organization. Sophia Loren in “Heller in Pink Tights” was the last film to run here.
The auditorium was renovated into a gymnasium and the stage/screen area into locker rooms. Boxing and basketball are featured here.
The RKO Broad Theatre advertisement painted on the outside of the building remained until 2001. The marquee exists; however, CYO replaced RKO.
The building is completely intact.
