A large theater located on Penn Avenue in the East Liberty section of Pittsburgh. Opened prior to 1941, movies were shown until late-1950’s after which it became beter known for live performances and boxing exhibitions. There was a Saturday morning radio broadcast of music from the Kimball Theater Pipe Organ – a three manual instrument.
This theater was vacant for a long period of time prior to demolition. This once beautiful theater was reduced to a shabby building by total neglect. Rumors exist that the pipe organ was removed and might have been relocated.
