Seeking Information On Pittsburgh’s Atlas Theatre

PITTSBURGH, PA — I am part of the Perry Hilltop Citizens' Council, a local communtiy group in Pittsburgh’s North Side. We are seeking ANY information on the Atlas Theatre, located near 2603 Perrysville Avenue. There is a $25 reward for a good quality photograph of the theatre in its heyday, which we’re guessing was the 40s and 50s.

We are also interested in any historic information on any of the properties in that area, near the intersection of Perrysville Avenue and Charles Street.

You might want to try the Pennsylvannis Historical Society. It is one of the oldest societies of its kind in the U.S.. They have archives of old newspapers, photographs, etc.. Try searching for an article on the theaters opening or a construction document to see who designed or who built it. The Historical Society can tell you about the history of the area you are looking for. Good Luck!
