A Kimball theater organ size 2/10 was installed in the 333 Theater in 1916.

11 July 1953 Box Office says former 333 sold by Stanley Warner to a company that seemed, from its name, that it would use the lot for parking.

I read that item too, Howard. They mention the “former 333 Theater” and also a fifteen year lease to Fisch’s Parking Places. I don’t think this theatre exists anymore.

Thanks, I didn’t notice the page says “Closed.” Of course, it should say Closed/Demolished. The theater building isn’t there anymore.

Boxoffice Magazine – July 11, 1953 (page 41) Philadelphia:

The premises, 333 Market St., site of the former 333 Theatre, were sold by the Stanley-Warner Management Corp. to L. M. Blitz for $90,000. Blitz leased the property to Fisch’s Parking Places for 15 years . . .

This page now says closed – demolished. The theater site is now a part of 399 Market Street, a five story office building in Old City.
