Originally opened in May 1926, the Broadway Theatre of Pitman operated as a fully equipped movie and vaudeville theater with 1,090 seats, including the balcony and eight boxes. The opulent New Jersey theatre was created in a French Revival motif by the Philadelphia architectural firm of Eberhard, Magaziner, and Harris.
The Theatre still has its original 3/8 Kimball theatre pipe organ - a unique instrument for its size. The Southern Jersey Theatre Organ Society has restored the Kimball to full concert status. Extensively renovated in 2006, the Broadway Theatre of Pitman hosts plays, musicals, concerts and special events. One of only a handful of surviving theatres of its kind in the Delaware Valley, it has quickly become a performing arts beacon in Southern New Jersey. In 2007 and 2008 the Theatre won the My Fox Philly Hot List Award for Best Indie Theatre in the Philadelphia area.
