The Pearl Theatre was built and opened in 1927. The general contractor was Joseph K. Lang. By the early-1940’s it was operated by the Wax Circuit. In March, 1951 it was operated by W. & R Theatre Enterprises and the Reo Amusement Company of Philadelphia.
The Pearl Theatre closed on March 18, 1971 with Christopher Jones in “Three in the Attic” & James Donnelly in “The Swappers”. A photograph from the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, dated August 15, 1976, shows the façade of the Pearl Theatre still intact but describes the theatre as abandoned. Today the site is a green oasis, lined with trees.
