A large palace which takes up a good portion of a city block on Broad Street, near Wyoming Avenue in the Logan section of North Philadelphia. By 1941 the Logan Theatre was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. Its latest incarnation was as a church.
Some of my earliest movies were seen on its imposing single screen— “Ben Hur” and “Moby Dick” among them. Located in a depressed area of Philadelphia, the structure appears intact and may yet retain much of its integrity.
In the late-2000’s the Logan Theatre was purchased by Dr. Owen Williamson and he is currently renovating the theatre as a memorial to his late wife. Current plans are for a live performance/restaurant venue. As of 2012, much of the interior has been repainted in its original colors, the roof has been repaired, building stabilized and electrical and plumbing work done.
