The Sedgwick Theater

The Sedgwick Theater is a historic American theater built in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

It was built in 1928 and designed by architect William Harold Lee. It is one of the remaining 20 Philadelphia theaters as of 2006[update] which he designed; nine have been demolished. Only two in Philadelphia are open- The Ace Theater (Holiday Art Theater) and The Sedgwick Theater. Just outside Philadelphia, two more of Lee’s theaters are seeing restorations: the Bryn Mawr and the Hiway Theater in Jenkintown.

The Sedgwick Theater, located at 7137 Germantown Ave in Philadelphia, is designed in the 1920s style of a Art Deco Movie Palace. It was built during a movie revolution with the advent of sync sound and would have seen silent films as well as talkies.
