The Princess Theatre was opened by 1935. It was still open in 1952 but had closed by 1955. It was converted into a bus station in 1958, and that how I remember it, when I was a kid in the late-1950’s early-1960’s part of the lobby was being used as a cab stand - bus station. It’s where you got the 88 bus to Pittsburgh. The marquee was still there but the name was painted out.
The other part of the lobby was a driveway going into what used to be the auditorium. The proscenium was still there with some of the stage curtains still hanging, there were still some theatre seats attached to the floor. It’s main use at that time was storage of taxi cabs and school buses.
