Question for NYC theater buffs

Can anyone identify the closed theater that used to appear briefly in the opening credits montage for “Law and Order SVU?”

I probably could identify the theatre, but I’ve never seen “Law and Order SVU.” Where can it be viewed?

New shows are on NBC but I don’t think the theater is seen in he montage of the newer shows. You are more likely to see it at the beginning of th reruns on the USA cable network.

If there’s a theatre depicted in ths linked clip, I must have missed it. Shortly after the start, I thought I’d spotted a blank marquee, but when I did a stop-motion, it looked more like the top half of a white emergency vehicle in the street.

Although it alwys looked to me like a closed theatre marquee when ever I have seen it on TV, the clip reveals as most likley a vehicle. I realized that it is unlikley that marquee would extend over the street that way. Thanks to all who took the time to respond.

In other words, never mind.
