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.

you can say those were the good old days..
the days of sexy Jewish girls shaking their
ass.

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.

Unfortunately they have taken down Wynne Sign
This is not fair, the only land mark left from
50's. What happend to my beautiful Wynnefield
