This theater was located in the Manchester section of Pittsburgh. I took a stroll by there the other day. You can see where the marquee has been covered over. From the structure of the building itself it’s not hard to imagine a movie theater was once housed there.

This theater was still open by 1957, but I have no information as to when it opened or closed.

Wow that’s a great photo.So I guess the theater was on Beaver ave.That’s amazing,the office I work in is on the same block.It’s safe to say the theater has been long demolished.

In 1963, Isaac and Harry Browarsky ran the Hippodrome, along with the Beaver Theater in Pittsburgh. They also operated the Bellevue and Linden theaters in Bellevue, PA.

During the first two years of the theater’s existence, when it was known as the Imperial, it lost money trying to present vaudeville shows.
