Nothing has been built on the site yet. The mall itself has been raized only within the past two years.

I just saw Tesla here the other night. Nice theater, needs some renovating and TLC, but nice.

I wish Pittsburgh had a decwent concert hall like this.

Wish they would reopen the theatre as a dollar cinema or something. Monroeville has nothing! (Shame on you for closing!)

raubre commented about Airport Theatre on Jul 7, 2007 at 6:47 pm

After watching a “Stuff That’s Gone” documentary on our PBS affiliate, this was in the old Pittsburgh International Airport, which has been since demolished.

I believe the theater survved through the 70s.

If you look closely at the picture I had posted earlier the marquee is for a concert by Journey. I’m guessing it was taken in the late 70s.
