The 69th Street Theater was opened in the summer of 1921. It is listed in 1943 as being operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management. Closed as a movie theatre in 1965, the last film being Tony Curtis in “The Great Race”. It was then occasionally used for boxing matches, then briefly reopened in 1981.

In 2014 it was operating as Theatre 7000 presenting live theatre events with a religious theme.

The accompanying map would put the theater at 7926 West Chester Pike (@ Carol Boulevard), nine blocks from its actual location. Someone is in need of geography lessons!

The correct address is: 7000 Terminal Square — Upper Darby PA 19082-2329.

On the outside, all traces of the 69th Street Theater have been removed and the building has been returned to its original appearance. On the inside, the theater remains, as the Overflow Theater. Operated by Inner-City Movement, a Christ based non-profit, the theater is a workshop designed to equip youth in evangelism and peer discipleship through theater arts. Live productions are presented. Apartments, offices and retail occupy the rest of the building.
