The Grange Theater opened on Christmas Day, 1934 with 1,000 seats. It was located on North Broad Street, just north of Olney Avenue at Grange Street. It was the second address from the corner, with Esquire Drugs occupying the corner space just next to the marquee. By 1941, it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. It showed 2nd run movies.
In 1951, the Grange Theater was sold and renamed Esquire Theater. It closed in the mid to late-1970’s. The theater reopened briefly in 1981 by Rusty A. Miller, who also reopened the Benn Theater on Woodward Avenue and the 69th Street Theater in Upper Darby.
Since closing it has had several incarnations as retail stores including a clothing store. Since 2009 it has been a fast food restaurant.
