Opened in 1915 or 1916 as a nickelodeon, but apparently closed by 1920, the Sea Theatre became a store. It was purchased in 1998 by the Penkalskyj family and reopened in 2003 as a 68-seat movie house.
As reported in the July 23, 2012 Philadelphia Inquirer, in 2012, the theatre did not reopen and has been placed for sale with an asking price in the mid-$200, 000. The Inquirer also reported that in reopening the theatre, the new owner found the sloped concrete floor and the original red wallpaper, and he installed a 1940’s Super Simplex projector and a platter in the original projection room.
