60th Street & Cedar Avenue,
1 person favorited this theater
A neighborhood theater in West Philadelphia. When its policy shifted to adults-only sometime around the mid-‘60s, 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 out of first place in the '70s and VCRs killed off its business in the '80s.
