Can’t enlarge the photos on Page 7, LM. No Acrobat Reader on my computer, probably. Sorry.

I, too, first noted the theater being at 1862 Centre Avenue, then found that the address listed elsewhere (I think Pittsburgh Press directories) as 1822. It’s hard to verify now.

After the theater was leveled, the general site was used as a surface parking lot, a super market that closed, and later, as Andrew Johnson noted in the Tribune-Review two years ago, a Subway restaurant and Cheap Tobacco & More.

It was the next-to-last functioning moviehouse in the Hill. Only the long-dormant New Granada Theatre stayed open longer and still stands.
