The interior of the Imperial has been stripped to the bare walls.

Hidden City Philadelphia includes a picture of the Imperial in a story on redevelopment along 60th Street.

All boarded up now, looks rather shabby. Interesting – the entrance is on one street, goes back and wraps to the right a little before connecting to the auditorium which is around the corner on another street. The buildings along the corner have been demolished so you can see the lobby wrapping around to the auditorium.

Not as pretty as the IMPERIAL in Augusta.

Here is a photo circa 1945 from the Irvin Glazer theater collection. Looking at the map photo there is a sign on the front of the building, but I can’t make out what it says. Perhaps the building is for sale.
