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.

there should be a book written, with photographs like this, from all over philadelphia. i've often thought of doing something like that. that would be cool, kind of like a trip back in time

When I was a kid growing up in Wynnefield,
we used to go to the Wynne theater on
Saturdays for the matinee, where the admission charge was
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

Lost


Lost Susie wakes up, once again not knowing where she is. Her head pounds as if a drummer has taken up residence in her brain, each beat of her heart causing another painful drumbeat. She looks across the filthy bed, sees...
