For a short period in 1916 this operated as the Biltmore Theatre.
Sorry, I found that one. It is the VITAGRAPH (44th & Broadway) that appears to be missing.
There appears to be no listing for Paramount’s Broadway Theatre. (1915-1928)on 41st street. Does anyone have any information?

I saw BILLY HILL, the failed Gerome Ragni play here in previews. I don’t think it ever left Miami after well deserved scathing reviews.
I believe it may be this furniture store:
Inspiration Furniture By Scan Design
3025 Sunny Isles Blvd North Miami Beach, FL 33160 (305) 944-8080
If the Theatre St. Marks rates a listing under the name THEATRE surely this should be changed to Cinema Studio.
In Christmas of 1922 the Stadium joined the wide release of Mary Pickford’s TESS OF THE STORM COUNTRY…and I mean wide.
33 runs in Manhattan alone.
Shows up in a September 1, 1918 NY Times full page ad for Paramount and Artcarft product.
“It is just as important to project the right sort of pictures ‘over here’ as it is to fire the right sort of cartridges ‘over there’"
reads the WWI ad.
In August 1956 the NYT announced plans by Walter Reade to reopen the theatre, an easy reconvert by removing a false floor put in the bank. The theatre is then listed as having 599 seats.

This plan was scrapped when new zoning laws would no longer allow it, hence the sale of the property to the archdioces soon after.
I work with Steve in London. He is the CEO of Cineworld Cinemas, a British chain he started from scratch in 1996 that built 34 multiplexes in ten years. In 2004 Cineworld bought UGC Cinemas and is now 79 theatres strong. www.cineworld.co.uk
The address for this theatre was 3025 Interama Boulevard.
The address above is incorrect. The Gables was at 2112 Ponce de Leon.
The address above is incorrect. The Coral was at 2331 Ponce de Leon.
This is now known as OLYMPIA THEATRE AT GUSMAN HALL. Common sense prevails!
This is now being advertised as the WEST 34TH STREET in newspapers since AMC took over.
Shouldn’t LOEWS CINE be added to the former names here even though it only referred to part of the building?
Cineplex Odeon tried to multiplex the Ziegfeld and triplex the National. Their respective landlords would not allow it. Whatever their motivation, common sense prevailed.
Ah, yes, to go back to the days when I was a manager in NY and we had reel to reel…
The refunds we gave out when the projectionist fell asleep at the Waverly.
The abuse I got from when he passed out drunk at the Bay.
The beating I received when he disappeared from the booth altogether at the Fresh Meadows and that infamous BACKDRAFT World Premiere at the Ziegfeld!
Ah, the good old days…
Cineplex Odeon named it Park & 86th Street even though it was closer to Lexington because they thought Park sounded classier. They also refused 86th & Park for the same reason.
The previous name, RKO 86th Street Twin (opened December 22, 1971) should be added here.
