Tyson Theatre, Northeast Philadelphia, PA

“The former Tyson Theater, located at 7043-45 Castor Avenue in the lower Northeast, retains its original architectural features . . . .”

From Philadelphia, THS member Howard B. Haas sent this link to this Hidden City Philadelphia blog article about the former Tyson Theatre which is in the Far Northeast area of Philly. Howard linked at the bottom of the article to a website he found which has interior photos.  Howard is unaware of any other surviving Art Moderne movie theater interior in Philadelphia, but is not certain.
