The marquee is gone now and the lower half of the fa├žade has been stuccoed over but the building still exists as banquet hall. The accompanying map is incorrect as it puts the theater in Harrowgate Park — between E. Tioga St. & E. Schiller St. The theater — at 3419-3423 Kensington Avenue — is between E. Schiller St. & E. Russell St.

Can anyone share who the architect was and in what style the Harrowgate was designed? From the exterior, the Harrowgate Theater (1923) and the Oxford Theater (1928) have some strong similarities. Any pics of the interior?

Also, a discrepancy exists between the year the Harrowgate opened (1923) and the year the Moller organ was installed (1920). Perhaps the theater was built around the organ?
