Philadelphia’s Boyd featured on the cover of a new book.

“As we explained in our last “Buildings Then and Now” feature, the Boyd Theater off Rittenhouse Square is Philadelphia’s last surviving movie palace, known for its distinctive Art Deco architecture. The theater has sat empty since it closed in 2002, but the Friends of the Boyd seeks to bring the theater back to life. We spoke with Howard B. Haas, the Friends’ founder and chairman, about his organization’s hopes and plans for the building. . .”
