The exact address for this theater was 2061 Dickinson Street (at S. 21st St.) 19146.
The theater was later demolished and the site remains an empty lot.
The actuarial address for this theater was 1838 S. 20th Street (at Mifflin Street) — 19103. The theater was demolished and the site is now fenced in and is used as a park and play area.
Well it’s been a year and no one has any additional information on this theater?
It has been four months since my last comment and still not a peep!
The Cottman-Bustleton Center is on Cottman Avenue (2139), not Bleigh Avenue!
Was the theater a part of the Andorra Shopping Center or was it free standing?
Well Howard, I guess they’re okay to keep if you have the time to search the archives. For many people, it’s simply a waste of time!
Why a photo of a decrepit 1991 Town Theatre? If a dated photo is to be shown, why not one when it was the Empire or Palace?
Who was the architect for this drive-in?
Why are all of these other theaters discussed here? The topic here is the Dade Theatre. Please, these other theaters have their own pages!
Who was the architect and in what style was the Dade Theatre designed? When did it close and when was it demolished?
Although decrepit, the 61ST STREET DRIVE-IN THEATRE sign, with its red arrow, still welcomes moviegoers to a drive-in that went dark over 30-years ago. It’s as if Rod Serling (1924-1975) is ready to step from behind that red/yellow, black/white marquee sign to say — Welcome to The Twilight Zone! “Strange Invaders” (1983 – Orion) starring Paul Le Mat (b. 1945) and Nancy Allen (b. 1950), the last picture to play here, may still be playing. Eerie!
“The Searchers” (1956 Warner Bros.) starring John Wayne (1907-1979) and Jeffrey Hunter (1926-1969) plus
“Magnificent Roughnecks” (1956 Allied Artists) starring Jack Carson (1910-1963) and Mickey Rooney (1920-2014) opened the Route 35 Drive-In. Since “Magnificent Roughnecks” was not released until Sunday, July 22, 1956,
the Route 35 could not have opened any earlier.
Built in 1956. Thank’s Tom!

No photos of the porn cinema?
The Lawndale Theatre seated 1,217 when it opened in 1922. Later refitted for live theater, it was renamed the Abbey Stage Door and seating was reduced to 850. Seating had been reduced again to 500 by the time the Abbey closed in 1964. A health center for a time, the theater has been a day care since the late 1970’s.
Hello! Why is the Mayfair Theater pictured on the St. James Theatre site above? It even says Mayfair Theatre, Asbury Park, N.J.
This is all the information we have for the Broad Theatre? There must be more out there!
In what style was the Parkwood Theatre designed and who were the architects? Also, when in the 1970’s was it twinned and when in 1985 did it close? Please share if you can, and thanks!
