Revival for Yeadon Theater Remains Elusive
YEADON, PA — The restoration of the Yeadon Theater is slowly inching along, according to a new report in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Current plans call for short-term stablization of the theater to begin within the next four months. Stablization efforts would first address the back portion of the Yeadon, which has been exposed to the elements since September 2003, when a contractor demolished the theater’s rear wall.
Previously, Yeadon officials had planned to demolish the theater, but due to an outcry from local preservationists, they’ve reversed course and are now working to save the theater.
“We’re still in the process of trying to get someone under contract,” Pickett said. “There’s concern, obviously, that the building is open. Unfortunately, there appears to be no alternative to that.”
