Alex 1: The Boyd in center city. If they can save this theatre it would be the only orig. movie house in c.c. You really can’t count the Prince. When Ted Turner restored several of his classic films they never played phila. because he couldn’t find a theatre in c.c. This is very SAD for Phila. The only other theatre is the Uptown on N.Broad St. but the area is not very good. ALL the other theatres ARE GONE!

I see someone wrote in and said the Logan Theatre was bought. Does anyone know if any restoration has begun? Also, for those of you who write in a lot and seem to know a lot about the local Philly theaters I have a question for ya. Which currently closed Philly or surrounding area theater do you think would be the most successful if a developer took it on and began to restore it?

The Logan: Cap. 1894 (orchestra 1124, boxes 40, mezzanine 303, bal. 427). Theatre opened 1-31-1924 The orig. policy was stage and screen shows changing twice weekly. Road show pictures played here after leaving center city. I saw some great films in this theatre. Good memories.

Does anyone know the history of the Logan Theatre? Who it was named after and what type of theatre was it? Was it poplar? Did any stars go there? etc.?

The Logan is EMPTY again. The last church that was in it moved out when they built a new church. I remember this theatre well. As a kid I would visit it often. The Broad and the Rockland were in walking range. Late last year (2003)I was in the theatre and what a shock.
The roof is bad it leaks. The Aud. is a mess. It’s sad to see this once nice movie house in this condition. A sale sign was up but this year it’s gone. If someone bought it good luck.
