The theatre was designed by Horace Trumbauer (who also designed the Philadelphia Museum of Art) as a vaudeville and film house. The theatre was remodeled in 1955 for Cinemascope and hosted area premiers of most big-budget films of the '50s and '60s. The Keswick closed in the Spring of 1980 and was slated for demolition. The non-profit Glenside Landmarks Society formed to operate the theare as a performing arts center, reopening the theatre from 1981 through 1985. The theatre reopened in March 1988 under private ownership and has undergone incremental renovations while becoming increasingly active as a concert venue. (3/31/2006)

(GNP) measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile. And it tells us everything about America except why we are proud that we are Americans. (Robert Kennedy, 1968)
