This theater also was known just as the Family. I have seat estimates of both 300 and 500. I suspect it was closer to 500 when it opened in 1915 or 1917 and then closer to 300 by the time of its apparent closing in 1957.

By 1983 the property was a vacant lot covered with deep grass.

At present, that block of Pittsburgh’s North Side does not even appeal on the Allegheny County real estate web site.

This venue does appear to have a run and should be listed in the East Allegheny neighborhood for its 40-year run from 1917 to 1957 as the Century Theatre, New Century Theatre, Century Family Theatre and Family Theatre.
