Center City Getting New Movie Theater! (Sort of)

Broad Street’s getting a new theater. Except it’s not exactly new. Well, whatever, we’ll take anything we can get here in screen-starved Philadelphia. (How’s that Roxy renovation going, guys? We’re waiting…)

The 650-seat Perelman Theater in the Kimmel’s Broad and Spruce Streets complex has been outfitted with a high-def digital video projection system with 3-D capability and surround sound audio. In cahoots with Sharon Pinkenson and the Greater Philadelphia Film Office, the plan is to book major studio events, local filmmaker premieres, offer its screen up for film festivals and college and university programs, along with other public and private bookings.
