PHILADELPHIA, PA — At this sidewalk gathering tomorrow, show support for the restoration and reopening of the Boyd Theatre, hear a short report by Friends of the Boyd president Howard B. Haas on the status of Philadelphia’s sole surviving premiere movie palace, and “meet and greet” Theatre Historical Society of America (THSA) members in Philadelphia.

THSA is the only organization in the U.S. which exclusively records, preserves and celebrates the rich architectural, cultural and social history of America’s theatres. The prestigious organization selected Philadelphia for their annual pilgrimage to historic theaters.

FREE event, no registration needed.

4:15 PM on the sidewalk in front of the Boyd Theatre, 1908 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102.

(Thanks to Friends of the Boyd for providing the photo.)

Although I don’t reside in the Philadelphia area, I’m heartened to read/hear about another theatre that’s being saved from the wrecking ball. I wish the Friends of the Boyd victory in their fight…and all the best of luck. It looks like a beautiful theatre.
