Tioga Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in north Philadelphia on N. 17th Street, between W. Atlantic Street and W. Venango Street. The Tioga Theater was opened in 1915, designed by architectural firm Sauer & Hahn. It operated as a movie theatre until at least 1950.

After closing, it had been the Deliverance Evangelistic Church until the church moved to the site of the Logan Theater on Broad Street in 1973. (This came from a post about the Logan on this site.)

In 2010, the building still stands, empty and unused.
