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.

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.

CSWalczak commented about New Yorker Theatre on Jun 9, 2008 at 10:21 pm

This theatre had apparently had a number of other names during its lifetime. Its opening name may have been the Victoria (rather than the Victory); it became the Embassy in 1935, then the Astor in 1949.
Its first incarnation as the New Yorker started in 1962, may have been briefly an adult theatre called in the Tivoli in the early 70s.
It became the Festival in 1978, the Showcase in 1986, and gian give the name New Yorker in 1998.

Here it is as the Embassy in 1937:
