How about the Old Boyd Theatre in Philadelphia. Check out Friends of the Boyd. Beautiful theatre, was to be remodeled by Clear Channel but they recently backed out.

Is that a theatre or a farmhouse? I was thinking of something a little bit more central. Im sure its worth something to someone, but not me.

I own the Regent Theater in Wellington Kansas and we have had the theater listed on this website for awhile. The theater used to be a Vaudville theater. We are currently showing movies. We have also had dinner theater and concerts. Price is negotable Please email me if you would like more info.

Check out www.historicwaynetheatre.com this vaudeville theatre was built in 1927 it is currently owned by a non-profit organization that has failed to raise the funds needed to restore her. The theatre is being threatened by the city to get torn down, but yet the city can’t afford to tear it down either!

I am a preservationist who is seeking parties of interest that may “save the day” for an endangered early 20th century theater by the prolific Thomas Lamb in Queens, NY. It is available for lease and possibly for purchase. Please e-mail at your earliest convenience, and I will share more information. Thanks!

I am sure that you can get our new seats by cost of used seats.

There is a beautiful theater in Troy NY that is available. It is the Proctor’s theater and is currently owned by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
