The Lafayette Theater is listed in the Irvin R. Glazer book ‘Philadelphia Theaters’ as being located at 2914 Kensington Avenue. It opened in 1913 and was closed in 1939.

Today, the imposing arched fa├žade is still partly recognizable but pretty damaged. The auditorium is in use for multiple purposes. The tenants said it has been totally gutted.

Doesn’t someone, anyone have something, anything to share about the Lafayette Theater? It did have a 21-year run.
