The building is now occupied by a liquor store. Here is an item from Boxoffice magazine in April 1960:

PITTSBURGH-The lease on the Shiloh Theater, Mount Washington, has been transferred from Roy Fiedler to Eddie and Frank Erkel. Fiedler continues in exhibition at the Parkway Theater in the McKees Rocks area, where he recently renewed his lease for five years.

in the late 50’s , .50cents would get you .15 cents worth (a small bag)of candy at the store across the street, and the remaining .35 cents would get you a whole afternoon of movies at the Shilo. three stooges, with paul shannon, hercules, etc. and i’m sure i didn’t appreciate it as much as i should have, a wonderful walk the lenth of Grandview Ave. to get home before the streetlights turned on, and what a Grand view it was.

The July 1, 1916, issue of The Moving Picture World carried this announcement about the Shiloh Theatre:

“Beautiful Shiloh Theater Opened.

“Pittsburgh, Pa.—The Shiloh theater, a beautiful new house in the Mt. Washington district, Pittsburgh, was formally opened to the public last week In a most auspicious manner. It is owned by Henry Polk and replaces the old Shiloh theater, which was closed in April. Many exhibitors were present on the opening night and all congratulated Mr. Polk on the high standard he has set. The new Shiloh is up-to-date and complete in its appointments, as well as quite attractive throughout. A pipe organ supplies the music. Feature pictures are shown dally and the admission is 10 cents.”
