This ghost still stands at 54th & Wynnefield Ave. Originally opened in 1928 during the golden age of cinema, the Wynne Theatre was an entertainment spot for residents until its closing in 1955 (later reincarnated as a catering hall and bingo hall until the 1970's). The original signage from the roaring 20's reminds neighbors of a forgotten era.

When I was a kid growing up in Wynnefield,
we used to go to the Wynne theater on

10 cents! I guess those days are gone
forever.

This is not fair, the only land mark left from
50's. What happend to my beautiful Wynnefield
