A South Philly Review story calls this the Point Breeze Theatre, and says that it was known as “the big theater with the little entrance.”

The Breeze Theatre did open in 1911 but architect Charles F. Schaef (1887-1972) only appears as the architect for a makeover in 1922. There seems to be no information on the original 1911 architect.

Oh yeh, it’s still demolished!
