The name was borrowed from a nearby landmark, the Hotel Abbey, on Seventh Avenue at 51st Street…Following the world premiere engagement of the French import, the Abbey carried on with some “B” programmers from Columbia, Republic, and Monogram before closing for the summer for lack of a reliable air-conditioning system.
It would never re-open under that name.
