The mission of The Theater at North is to enrich the life of our community by offering quality performing arts, as well as providing a venue for social, educational, and professional events.
The Theater at North is located in the former North Scranton Junior High School building atop the hill where Green Ridge Street meets North Main Avenue in Scranton, PA. This historic landmark was built between 1922-1924 in a late Gothic Revival style, featuring a four-story clock tower, and is on the National Register of historic places. It served as a junior high school until its closure in 1987.
In 2015, with Gerald T. Langan at the helm, Goodwill Industries of Northeastern Pennsylvania fully renovated this historic landmark into 58 senior-living units. The building was aptly renamed, “Goodwill at North, Gerald T. Langan Apartments.” In the heart of the building lies the majestic Theater at North, a fully restored and renovated, 800 seat state-of-the-art venue with cinematic capabilities. The Theater is host to a variety of performances, concerts, recitals, films, lectures, and community/social events.
