The Waverly Theatre was a huge single screener, opened in October 1927 in Drexel Hill, a Delaware County suburb of Philadelphia. As of 1931, the auditorium had 1,562 seats. Philadelphia theatre architects Hoffman-Henon Co. designed it. Stanley Warner operated it. Until the 1960’s or 1970’s, it had coal heat. The coal was in the basement, and a fan would blow the hot air around. It closed in the 1980’s. The restroom suites were lavish.
The building is used as a bar and beer distributorship J.D. Mc Gillicuddys.
