News About This Theater
- Sep 30, 2008 — Controversy swirls around plans to reopen Jumbo Theatre
This was a very well known movie house in it’s day, probably just by it’s location alone (and my mother remembers it well): It was located at the busy intersection of N. Front Street and W. Girard Avenue. The El train stopped there, and also the Route 15 trolley-which is now back in service. Up until a couple of years ago, it was an electrical supply house, with the back warehouse still possessing some of the original plaster work that surrounded the screen.
By 2019 the theatre had been gutted and it was operating as a Dollar Tree store. It was vacant by 2021.
