Here are some 1930s movie posters from the Andrea Theater. This is an Ebay link so it might not last too long. This is the text that goes with the picture:

Although I don’t know many details about this theater, I do have some information.
The Andrea Theater was built by Mr. Peter Magazzu who went on to own a chain of movie theaters in northeastern Pennsylvania, including the Angela Theater in Coaldale,PA which is still running today.
He named most of his theaters after family members,with the Andrea being named for his father.
When The Andrea closed, it was sold and became The Andrea Pentacostal Church.

According to this site, the theater is now a church. An internet search also shows Bethel Assembly of God at 2nd and Main Streets in Catawissa.
