This was a neighborhood theater in the Overbrook section of West Philadelphia that opened in 1913 with 600-seats. It was named after Robert Hamilton who also operated the Garden Theatre on the same street. It was initially equipped with a United States organ. In 1923 it was equipped with a Gottefried organ and in 1924 this was replaced by a Kimball organ. It was refurbished in 1924 and was enlarged to 900-seats in 1928. It was closed in the late-1960’s.

It was later converted into a church which is still open in 2022.
