The Pelham was the original name for this theatre located at 6351 Germantown Avenue. I’m not sure when the name changed to the Upsal Theatre. It was a 470 seat theatre that was built in 1914. It closed around 1951. It was sold to the Police Athletic League Boys Club, but initially used for the sale of lumber. The bulding is still there. I passed this building numerous times and it was clear to me that it was a theatre at one time and currently is being used as a church.
