Lansdowne Theatre in suburban Philadelphia on path to restoration

LANDSDOWNE BOROUGH, PA — The historic 1927 Landsdowne Theatre is on the road to restoration. Closed for over two decades, fundraising efforts have now begun after volunteers helped clean the theater and return it to a minimally usable condition. Designed by William H. Lee in a Spanish Mission/Spanish Baroque style, it was once a part of the Stanley-Warner chain.

Schultz eventually envisions the theater as a showplace for movies, theater, stage acts and concerts.

But the miracle behind the restoration is the support from the community and the borough as well as the county and businesses. “The people have really stepped up!”

The effort has seen some 200 people volunteering their time to get down and dirty to clean the theater since October.

There is more here, with a video, in the Daily Times.
