Designer; William Wrifford
Builder; Handel Rovner

The redelopment plans look like the best thing to happen to this theatre in years. The owner of the Trocadero Theatre (a gorgeous 130 year old vaudeville house in Philadelphia) is heading up the redevelopment group. The building is still owned by the township at this point.

There is nothing left inside of the original movie house. With some serious redesign and the removal of a hideous drop ceiling and a huge sheetrock wall spliting the main room there will be a nice stage with a decent capacity for all kinds of events. The current word on the street is it will be focused on Live Music, like the Trocadero. Although I imagine it will also has a weekly movie night like the Trocadero. Seating should but around 600 when the balcony is opened up.
