The Rockland a close neighbor to the Logan in North Philly. A.F. Schenck was listed as the original architect. The theater was opened in 1914 and demolished in 1970. I remember going here in the mid 1960’s till about 67' or 68' along with going to the Logan. It wasn’t as big as the Logan and seemed to be an older theater then the Logan. But looking back I think the Logan maybe tried to be more “kid friendly” even though that wasn’t a term back then. We would go to the Rockland or to either one for that fact depending on who had the newer movie or who had the movie we didn’t see yet.
Unfortunatly, we had to “flee” the neighborhood back in the summer of 69'. I was only nine years old at the time. We did however, manage to take a lot of great memories from our beloved Logan neighborhood and going to the Rockland certainly was one of them along with the Logan. Sadly, both the Rockland and Logan met the same fate. Being in the wrong neighborhood at the wrong time!
Anybody have any pics of the Rockland or any info/memories/stories?
