The theater was in the Manchester section of Pittsburgh’s North Side from 1909 to 1919. A whole chunk of Manchester’s Beaver Avenue was turned into a connector between the Fort Duquesne Bridge and Routes 65 and 19 as well as a strip mall.

J.N. Benderly and H.O. Brown formed the B&B Theatre at 1722-1724 Beaver Avenue in 1909 in a former dry good location. There appears to be a legal battle in 1919 which ends the theater’s life. However, that also is the end of a ten-year lease which may also be why the theater closed. A massive urban development project announced in 1960 decimated the Manchester retail district leading to the demolition of 900 buildings including the what once was the B&B.
