“Working in Philly” Stories: Bond Bread and the Aldine Theater

Philadelphia is a hard working town. MOVIEHOUSE PRODUCTIONS presents two tales from our city’s busy and productive past.

Bob Frank and Hal and Elsie Oetzel shared memories of NE Philly’s Crescentville’s Bond Bread “Great North” plant.

Allen Goodkin ushered and was assistant manager of the Aldine Theater, 19th and Chestnut Streets, 1933-1942. Goodkin reminisced about the fine art of ushering in this video.

1971 Rizzo-Longstreth Philadelphia Mayoral Debate

Once again, Moviehouse Productions and Paramount News collaborate on a historic Philadelphia video. This time; the titanic October 16, 1971 debate between Frank Rizzo, former Police Commissioner and Democrat and Republican Thacher Longstreth, long time city councilperson and Chamber of Commerce Chair.

“Phorgotten ” Philly Water Towers

In the midst of a searing heatwave, MOVIEHOUSE PRODUCTIONS provides relief by sharing tales of Philadelphia’s “phorgotten” water towers. Not only were these towers key for commerce, but they were familiar neighborhood landmarks as well. They pumped the fluid of life to our homes and industries. Special tribute is paid to the great Chestnut Hill water tower.
