“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!

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.

“The Franklin Theater … has cinema-style seating, a full surround sound system, acoustical treatment, a high contrast perforated screen, and a state-of-the-art high definition digital 3D projection system. The latter enables us to present new digital 3D films, giant screen favorites re-mastered in 3D, and live events with digital 3D content! And, the sound and projection systems will improve the quality of lectures and daily programming”. — Source: The Franklin Institute
Okay, so it took 12 years, but they got it done! To those who said it shouldn’t happen, couldn’t happen, wouldn’t happen, or didn’t happen — ?!*/%#+ … . , to you! It did happen! Welcome back King’s Theatre, and thank you to all those who made it happen!
Maybe the absence of details is for the best!

Since Dave removed his comment, I’ll repost my comment from June 2, 2014 at 6:54 pm. Sorry Dave, you’re a little confused! It’s EAST Columbia Avenue (today renamed EAST Cecil B. Moore Avenue).
Thanks Joe for responding!
In what style was the Alhambra Theatre designed and does amyone have photos of this theater? Please share.
Strange thing about this Ritz Theater is that it’s in Port Richmond, New York. And there’s not a clue to what New York’s Port Richmond has to do with Philadelphia’s Port Richmond!
Not actually a photo — this is an artist’s conception.
Now just a decrepit mess!
