continuous years. Aside from the short-lived Richard LaSalle stock Company, the Knickerbocker Players was the only permanent theatrical stock company left in Philadelphia by 1918. However, proceeds apparently faltered. Citing the growing attraction of motion pictures, it, too, disbanded at the end of the season, with the understanding that the company would not be reorganized. The Knickerbocker Theatre eventually was converted into a motion picture theatre and its name changed to the Fays Theatre in 1925.
