Save The Boyd Theater

Posted 3/13/2014 3:31:00 PM

Greetings,

Recently I had the chance to speak with Howard B. Haas Chairman & President of  about The Amazing Boyd Theater.

One block from Rittenhouse Square, on Chestnut Street between 19th & 20th, there stands a remarkable building - The Boyd Theatre. Philadelphia's last movie palace, it was called the Sam Eric when it closed in May, 2002. Help save this Philadelphia landmark and restore this amazing structure to its former grandeur and obtain a film program.

Friends of the Boyd need you to appear in person to show your support for Saving the Boyd (Philadelphia's last movie palace)  at the Philadelphia Historical Commission hearing on Friday, March 14 at 1515 Arch Street (the aluminum colored building) on the 18th floor starting 9 AM. They don't need everybody to speak, but we do need the full Historical Commission to see our supporters!

Check them out at .

Cheers,

Pierre

Listen to our chat to find out more about that, plus the new KWS album on the horizon, and how Jimi Hendrix influenced Kenny as a young blues guitarist.

Today, David Florig, the Executive Director of WePac was in to discuss the library situation in the Philadelphia School System. Right now there are only 12 state paid libraries open at elementary schools in Philly, 28 over all. There are 150 schools in Philly. WePac uses volunteers and money to open the libraries in the schools. Get more information at their website. Thank you so much for listening,
