Opened on July 7, 1967 with Michael Crawford in “The Jokers”, Theatre 1812 was an independent first-run theatre of the 1960’s and 1970’s. “The Lion in Winter” was shown for 39 weeks, starting November 3, 1968, here, for its Philadelphia area first run engagement. It eventually switched to adult films.
It closed and became a meeting hall for the city teachers' union, then was leased by Budco and reopened as the Palace Theatre in November 4, 1983. When AMC acquired Budco it was said that this was the only single-screen theatre in their chain. It closed for good in November 1992.
