PHILADELPHIA, PA — With the news of the demolition of the Boyd Theatre the other week, Friends of Boyd has responded at Plan Philly. If you’ve been following the story, you’ll want to read about how the Friends' proposal actually was viable and a more organic solution for the city. Unfortunately, as earlier reported, interior demolition is underway.

Is the appeal still happening on April 1?

I taught in Philadelphia from 1969-1976. I loved going to this theatre. When I was in Philadelphia two years ago. I dragged a friend to see the closed theater.

I can not believe the City is NOT supporting The Friends of the Boyd. It is a shame what they are doing to this movie palace. If other cities can restore their former movie palaces why can’t Philadelphia do the same. I worked a usher from 1969-1972 and visited this theatre a lot doing that time. A Beautiful place.
