Situated in northwestern Pennsylvania, the Brockway Theatre opened in 1941 and was originally owned and operated by Joseph B. Kosco, according to the 1942 Film Daily Year Book. With the innovative Ben Schlanger as architect, the Brockway’s "entire auditorium design and finish is inspired by the physical sciences of the behavior of light and sound emanating from the screen surface and sound system," said the annual’s editors. "Contrary to usual practices in auditoria design for film exhibition, surfaces are of a hard smooth finish, comparatively light in color. Proper control of the sound and screen light reflections are achieved by specially designed angularized and grooved surfaces. The seating is mostly on the main floor, but there is also a small mezzanine section." More information about the Brockway Theatre’s history and the current status of the site is needed.
