The Ellis Theatre

Surfing the facebook group Photos from Northeast Philly in old pictures (1980s and earlier),  I came across this pic of the inside of the Ellis Theatre.

  1. I remember going to the Ellis in the 50’s and early 60’s. Many a Saturday matinee watching B westerns and movies like The Blob and House on Haunted Hill, among others. 25 cents to get in. After it closed it became a Social Security office. That’s where I got my card.
