The 52nd Street Theatre was built in 1909 on the corner of S. 52nd Street and Sansom Street. The architect is listed as Jacob Nasehold. It had a 17ft deep stage. The name was changed to the Rivoli Theatre in 1920 and it was equipped with a 3 manual Marr & Colton organ. The Rivoli Theatre closed in 1930 and became an indoor golf course. This later closed and it reopened as the Rivoli Theatre again until closing as a movie theatre in the 1960’s. It went over to live theatre use by a local repertory company. This closed in 1970 and it was demolished later that year. A library was built on the site.
