“Downtown Shopping like it used to be”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Philly used to have great shopping on Market Street, but it takes a back seat to Walnut St from Broad St. to Rittenhouse Square. Great stores, and the merchandise to match! Walk down either side of the street and enjoy!

“Plays are entertaining. That's it.”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Theatre is over 200 years old. Seats are fairly comfortable, but too narrow for real comfort. Always have to look over someone's head. Saw Buddy Holly story which we really enjoyed. The place is plain inside and the intermission drinks and snacks are crazy high prices. The parking lot beside the theater is convenient.
