Boyd Theatre settlement reached

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The 12 year battle for the Boyd is lost so the preservationists entered into a settlement agreement for what they could save before all but the facade is demolished.

Certainly a sad end for this story but the Friends of the Boyd should be applauded for all their years of dedication to saving this treasure. At least a small portion will be preserved for future generations.

A Round of Applause to the Friends of the Boyd. Hip Hip Horray. Hip Hip Horray. Living in Philly, it is a shame what the City Leadership did (Nothing). A beautiful theatre is now destroyed. Loved going to the Boyd, especially when they had a Cinerama Screen. It is amazing that other cities can restore old movie theatres, while Philly destroys them.
