The former McBride Theater is now home to Sherm Edwards Candies. “In 1977, Sherm and Dorothy purchased the old McBride Movie Theater in Trafford, renovated it and opened for business as Sherm Edwards Candies on December 8th, 1978”.

Any further information on the McBride Theater would be appreciated.

From Boxoffice magazine, January 1963:

Clarence and George McBride, who operate the McBride Theater, have been in exhibition at Trafford for 42 years.

My mom took me to this theatre to see Fantasia in the late 60’s. We only lived a few miles from it, up on Haymaker Rd.

This item is from the May 14, 1921, issue of The Moving Picture World:

“J. McBride has built a $40,000 theatre at Trafford City, Pa. Yes, indeed, and some house it is, too, right up to the minute as far as modern houses are concerned. Mr. McBride is also in the grocery business there.”
