One of the many neighborhood theaters in Philadelphia. From what I’ve read about the Boro Theater, it opened September 10, 1940 and closed in 1950. Built by the Mitchell Theatre Company who operated the Roxy Theatre directly opposite. The seating was all on a single level.

The building is still there, with the marquee. When the Boro closed, it was converted into a retail store. Today, it is the Roxborough Post Office (19128). The marquee is still being used, but as a sign, not for lettering. This theatre was right across the street from the Roxy Theatre (closed and demolished) at Ridge and Leverington Avenues.

It’s still a post office. The function should be changed accordingly.

Now I know where to buy a stamp in Roxborough/Manayunk. What I don’t know is what the theater looked like when it was open!

I’ve been waiting over two years and I still don’t know what the Boro Theater looked like!
