Towne Playhouse

Located in the North Philadelphia section of Wissahickon, this opened in the 1930’s as the Wissahickon Theatre. The theatre was still operating as a movie theatre in 1941, but had closed by 1943. It was converted to live theatre use and renamed Towne Playhouse. In 2015 it housed a school of acting and dancing and was demolished later in 2015. An apartment block has been built on the site.
