My dad has a picture of the Prince Theatre which he used to have hanging in the projection booth of the Ambridge Family Theatre. I’ll ask him for it and scan it. It would have been at a time when Warner Brothers operated it and my dad worked there.

This page of the souvenir program of an event held in 1924 contains an advertisement for the Ambridge Amusement Company, operators of the Prince and Regent Theatres.

There is a vacant lot directly across the street from 625 Merchant Street now. That must be where the Prince Theatre was located. The building adjacent to it is an old J. C. Penney store of 1940s or 1950s vintage, which would not have been the theater, though it might have been built on the theater’s site. It looks like the Prince has been demolished.
