…and was operating as late as 1955. Looking at newspaper ads from the era, 1956 seemed to be the year of doom for many of Harrisburg City’s neighborhood houses.

The Broad Theatre was listed in the 1922 Harrisburg city directory.

This is all the information we have for the Broad Theatre? There must be more out there!

I remember the Broad but my family never went there. The area around the Broad St. market was a nice shopping district when I was growing up. The Rialto was down the street. Also a store called simply Bill’s (as I recall). And a five-and-dime.
