Opened on September 20, 1946 with Carol Raye in “Waltz Time”, the College Theatre has a single story Georgian style façade, in Colonial style brick with four columns supporting a portico. The auditorium had all seating on a single floor. Notable decoration were two large photo-murals midway down the side-walls over emergency exits. These depicted the Parrish Hall (the main building of Swarthmore College) and the Clothier Memorial Tower at Swarthmore College.
It was closed on December 5, 1987 with Tim Curry in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”. The College Theatre has been turned into stores.
