THEATRE CONTRACT AWARDED.
The Security Construction Company has been awarded the contract for building the theatre and office building at 253-259 West 125th street, running through to West 126th street. The theatre will have a seating capacity of 2,500 and will be the most elaborate of its kind in Harlem. Hurtig & Seamon, who have conducted their music hall on 125th street for the past sixteen years, are the lessees of the new theatre, the deal being closed through Sidney S. Cohen as broker. The theatre will be ready in the fall of 1913.
Hopefully you found the other Apollo Theatre by now. If not, click here for the Apollo Theatre on 42nd Street.
Its good to be reincarnated, Ed. The other account didn’t work right. This one works great so far. Okay, back to the show. I had no idea that a theatre ever existed at this location. The only theatre (if you want to call it a theatre) that I was aware of that was close to this location was Kreuschers Arcade. The arcade was located on the other side of Cypress Avenue so it couldn’t be the Cypress Air Drome.
The small building on the map that is marked “moving pictures” could have been a small enclosed theatre. Too bad that the map doesn’t give a name for it. That building appears to be “landlocked”. Maybe you had to go through the air drome to access that building. Even though I was happy to find this theatre, not being able to find more information about it can be a little frustrating. Hopefully someone else will know something about this theatre and post it here.
Thanks Al. Good to see that your still here. I have missed a number of people on this website. It appears that a few of them have left the website for various reasons but many of the “old timers” are still here.

This is a circa 1915 picture of the Crystal Theatre.
A previous name of Ivonhoe Theater should be added. Looking at the photo above, that is an unusual way to spell that name. The Ivonhoe Theater opened on November 21, 1914.
George M. Cohen’s Theatre opened on Monday, February 13, 1911.
This is an excerpt from The Sun published on Sunday February 12, 1911.
The opening of George M. Cohan’s theatre will take place to-morrow afternoon when a special Lincoln’s Birthday matinee of “Get Rich Quick Wallingford” will be given. The new theatre is at Forty-third street and Broadway and has a seating capacity of 1,000.
The theatre was designed by George Keister and constructed by the C. L. Grey Construction Company. Its builders say that the entire theatre can be emptied in one minute. The main entrance is on Broadway, a step from the subway. The building is said to be fireproof.
The exterior of the building is in terra cotta, iron and bronze. With the exception of the base and the door piece, all the rest of the building other than the bronze and iron trimmings is of a cream white terra cotta with a new finish, a glaze that gives it a lustre like semi-polished marble. The base is of green granite and the main door piece and the vestibule are finished in a dark green marble.
In the main lobby on Broadway there is a frieze of mural paintings that portrays the history of the four Cohans in various stages of their careers, and in the auditorium above the boxes and the proscenium George M. is portrayed in huge oil paintings giving his regards to
Broadway and waving the American flag.
