THE YOUNG LIONS was original scheduled at the next attraction, however, instead, The ROXY was retrofitted for Cinemiracle & WINDJAMMER as its next attraction. LIONS eventually opened at the Times Sq. Paramount.

Finally! I was waiting for a similar ad to appear. I always knew this was a reserved seat engagement, but many seemed to think otherwise.

I attended one of the early screenings of Fantasia during 1978 at the Music Hall. Ushers had to open up the closed off Mezzanine areas because the crowd became so large.

Joseph commented about NYC Radio City Music Hall Rockettes - 1937 on Mar 5, 2016 at 2:18 pm

Definitely Rockettes. Originally there were 32, then called Roxeyettes. After Move from ROXY Theatre to Music Hall, the line was increased to 36 because of wider stage. There were never more than 36 performing on stage at one time.Later, after Rothafel’s departure from Music Hall, the line was re-named Rockettes. The additional 10 in photo were used as substitutes as needed.

Something is going on here. The interior of the building appears to be demolished from the inside out to the outer walls. Basically now a shell.

On closer examination this photo was NOT taken on opening day, 1927. The girls, 22 of them, have GF on their costumes, signifying Gaye Foster. The Gaye Foster troupe began appearing at the NY ROXY after the departure of Rothafel during the mid-1930’s. The 32 Roxyettes moved over to Radio City Music Hall with Rothafel in 1932-33. The Roxyettes line was increased to 36 and later re-named Rockettes.

Also, the NYC Hilton Hotel appears to be nearing completion to the left of the Ziegfeld.

This is Robert Rothafel, Roxy’s Nephew, greeting guests arriving for the world premiere of THE KING AND I during June, 1956. Robert became the general manager of the ROXY in late 1955 and remained until shortly before closing.

This is a screen shot from HOW TO MURDER YOUR WIFE (1965). The original Ziegfeld Theatre is seen in the background. A few years before being demolished and replaced by the “new” Ziegfeld movie theatre (a poor substitute) and a high rise office building.

Hey Debellis how about some referencing on your multiple uploads? Source acknowledgements, dates or description would be appreciated! This photo looks to be a capture from a newsreel clip.

To Simon, Please see my photo of a female ROXY usherette. Females WERE recruited during WW2 because of manpower shortages.
