60th Street & Cedar Avenue,
2 people favorited this theater
A neighborhood theatre in West Philadelphia. When its policy shifted to adults-only sometime around the mid-1960’s, the operators tried the oldest trick in the book: adopting a name that would place them at the beginning of the alphabetical listings in the papers. Thus the Cedar Theatre became the Abbe Art Cinema. Something called the Aarde Cinema knocked the Abbe Art Cinema out of first place in the 1970’s and VCRs killed off its business in the 1980’s.
