I found one site that said the Holly Theatre opened in 1945 (it is not listed in early-1940’s editions of Film Faily Yearbook). It opened as the Holly Theatre and through the 1950’s it was operated by Allied Theatres. Later became an independant.

It is located in the main part of town on N. Baltimore Street at Church Street. I couldn’t find when the name change took place but would assume when it became an independant. I am sure the name came from the town it is located in.

If anyone has further information the the Mount Holly it would be appreciated.

This theatre is no longer in operation and has been transformed into an apartment building called Center Stage Apartments. This little theatre had a bit of a notorious reputation in the early 1970s when it was called the “Holly Art Theatre” and showed XXX porn. The owner, an old guy with a craggy voice and some kind of New Yorky accent used to do radio commercials for it on one of the Carlisle stations. They were hysterical. I’ll never forget the one for one particular feature. It went something like this: “Now showing at da Holly Aht Theatre. "Thar She Blows.” The story of men and women who go down to the sea in ships.“ Priceless.

This theatre is no longer in operation. At last word it has been converted into an apartment building known as the Center Stage Apartments.

Holly Theatre was open circa 1992-93. At that time there was a sizable stage under the screen, which was perfect for the “Rocky Horror” cast that performed there. (The shows usually sold out, despite the theatre’s rather remote location and the movie’s availability on video.)
