Opened in 1946, the College Theatre has a single story Georgian style facade, in Colonial brick with four columns supporting a portico. The auditorium had all seating on a single floor. Notable decoration were two large photo-murals midway down the side-walls over emergency exits. These depicted the Parrish Hall (the main building of Swarthmore College) and the Clothier Memorial Tower at Swarthmore College.
Since closing in around spring of 1987, the College Theatre has been turned into stores.
