The South Side Hippodrome Theater opened in 1907. In 1915 it was renamed Grand Theater. Around 1922 it became the Arcade Theater. In 1929 it was the first theater outside of downtown Pittsburgh to have sound and air-conditioning. Following an extensive remodel in 1939 the seating capacity was increased to 1,400.
The Arcade Theater closed on February 4, 1984 with Richard Farnsworth in “The Grey Fox”. Five hours after closing the theater was destroyed by fire in an arson attack. An Eckerd pharmacy sits on the site of the theater.
