For many years I watched a feature and color cartoons—and usually a serial (such as Naoka, Queen of the Jungle) and waited for the Schwinn Bicycle giveaway. The manager/owner and his daughters presented the bike each week to someone other than me.

For a neighborhood movie theater, they had an amazingly sumptuous balcony with lots of marble—and the restrooms (I can speak only for the men’s) was worth a visit.

There was a Park Theatre operating in Philadelphia in 1922, when the October 22 issue of The Film Daily ran an ad for Warner Brothers with photos of several Warner houses in the city. The Park is at the right of this page.
