Designed in late Streamline Modern style by the firm of Thalheimer & Weitz, the Devon Theater opened in 1946. This originally nearly 800-seat movie house was located on Frankford Avenue near Barnett Street.
In early 2000 the Devon Theater closed but is currently in the process of being renovated for use as a performing arts center.
The Devon Theater for the Performing Arts is set to open in spring of 2009.
Can the old “Dirty Devon” bring new life to Mayfair? Well Thanks to budget cuts the rebirth of the Devon Theater may be delayed but it did have a short run of new venues and stores.
