Penn Liberty Historic District
— National Register of Historic Places - Pittsburgh Historic Structure —This building, originally known as the Stanley Theater, was built in 1926-1927 by James Bly Clark as the Pittsburgh flagship of the Stanley-Clark Motion Picture Company. The architects were the Hoffman-Henon Company of Philadelphia, considered at the time to be the most important theater designers in the eastern United States. At its opening on February 28, 1928, the Stanley, with its lavish interior spaces and state of the art equipment, was considered at the forefront of modern theater design, and for decades was host to many varied entertainments. It survives today as a masterpiece from the great age of movie palaces.
