I just discovered this lovely site. Louis Sheinart, the architect of the Majestic and the New Law Theater, was my great, great (great?) uncle. He also designed the Variety Theater. There are some terrific photographs here. My family knows very little about him, but it is wonderful that his memory is being kept alive through Cinema Treasures. If anyone has more information about Louis Sheinart, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. esheinart

Louis Sheinart, the architect of the Variety, was my great, great (maybe one more great?) uncle. I used to pass by the Variety many times when I attended the OLD Stuyvesant High School at 16th Street and 1st Avenue in the mid 1980s. Little did I know until many years later, that there was a family connection! Louis also designed several other theaters listed on this site. Unfortunately my family knows little about him, such as where he studied architecture, etc. If anyone has more information, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for the nice photographs and comments. I know Louis would have been proud! esheinart
