WINTER HOLIDAY SOCIAL
Few of the “jewel box” movie theaters that dotted Philadelphia exist. Rick Spector’s “MOVIEHOUSE” remembers this lost world of entertainment through a citywide tour of old theaters, including several in Frankford. Join Society members, staff, and volunteers in this annual Holiday Social. Please bring light refreshments or desserts to share.
The monthly public meetings of the Historical Society of Frankford are held in its own Museum and Library, built in 1930. Enjoy the Society’s collections and exhibitions as you learn something new each month. Following each program, light refreshments are served so participants and presenters can refresh and exchange ideas on the topic.
Refreshments served. Members free; Others $5.00
