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

According to the tax records, this building is now a store:

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!
