The Bartram Theatre opened in the silent movie era of 1914 with 494 seats. Located in the Kingsessing neighborhood of Southwest Philadelphia, the theater was designed by Philadelphia architect Leroy Berman Rothschild, AIA (1886—1935). Mr. Rothschild also designed the Sylvania Hotel (now condominiums) at 1324 Locust Street and office buildings (now luxury apartments) at 1600 Walnut Street and 1700 Walnut Street in Philadelphia.

The building shown was not the Bartram Theatre. The overview should show the theatre as demolished rather than closed. Also, PAB shows the theatre as Bartram THEATRE, not THEATER.

The building shown, at Paschall Avenue and S. 55th Street, is not the Bartram Theatre. The Bartram Theatre was behind this property, at 1909 S. 55th Street. Today, an enpty lot is all that remains of the Bartram Theatre.
