Here are a couple of photographs I took in May 2006. Nothing has changed on the exterior apart from the removal of the marquee. Inside everything has either been gutted or covered over:

The Heights Theatre opened in October 1913 according to The Movie Lovers Guide to New York (1987 edition). There is a photograph in the book with the Heights playing ‘3 Big Adult Hits XXX’

As one of the Martin J. Lewis Theatres (1955). To the best of my knowledge, Lewis’s middle initial did not stand for “Jerry”:

In July of 1970 “Oliver” came out on a discount run. In Manhattan it’s playing the Heights and the Jade. Is the Jade a Chinatown theatre? Seems like an odd booking.

It was still operating in 1987 according to the original edition of the book ‘The Movie Lovers Guide to New York’ by Richard Alleman.
