With help from PIDC through a Capital Project Loan, owner, Kevin O’Brien, turned an abandoned movie theatre on Philadelphia’s famous South Broad Street into a modern two-story, 10,000-square-foot production studio, and showroom. “The new building allows us to be more innovative,” said Kevin. “We have better communication because everything-production, design, and office space-is under one roof.”
