History

The American Music Theater Festival first hit the stage in 1984 and has since produced over a hundred musical theater productions. In 1999, the company moved into a home of its own — a restored old film theater off the Avenue of the Arts — and named it after the great Harold Prince.

The Philadelphia Film Society acquired the theater in early 2015, reopening it as the Prince Theater.
