Not a great photo, but the Rivoli marquee can be seen on the right. Date is 1950.

The thing I remember about the Rivoli was that the marquee displayed odd, home made looking wooden letters that slid into wooden tracks. By the 1960’s from the street the theater looked lost and old fashoned among the other 52nd street houses. Even the closed ones!

A Marr & Colton theater organ size 2/4 was installed in the Rivoli Theater in 1924.
