Doesn’t look like this will be restored anytime soon.

Historic theater could remain in limbo for years

The pipes that remained in the photo above were removed about a year or so before demolition. I don’t know if the owner had them removed or if they were taken by scrappers.

I don’t see why iPic can’t follow the Alamo Drafthouse’s plan for the New Mission Theatre in San Francisco
? They’re dividing the balcony up, while keeping the orchestra level as one big theater, and they’re keeping the architectural details intact. It would be the best of both worlds.

Matt Lambros commented about Boyd Theatre on Oct 2, 2013 at 4:11 pm

Yes, according to a quote from Howard Haas on Philly.com

“Friends of the Boyd, a group of preservationists, opposes iPic’s plans, said its president, Howard Haas.

Haas met Tuesday with iPic representatives. He said he was told that the only aspect of the 1928 Art Deco building that would be preserved would be the Chestnut Street façade.

“They’d demolish the auditorium, and that is the theater,” Haas said. “Trendy multiplexes last 10 years [before they’re remodeled]; iPic should build elsewhere in the city.”

I didn’t think anything was being restored. Pretty sure they gutted the building completely.
