The Tuxedo Theater was built in 1927. This theater closed around 1972. The building still stands and an address search shows a US Post Office located there today.

A biopic was made about David ‘Mickey’ Marcus in the early 60s. It was called “Cast a Giant Shadow” and it starred Kirk Douglas.

In the 1970’s it also was an OTB parlor. I was there in 2007 and it’s now a furniture store, with a gigantic red canopy on the top of the exterior wall on Jerome Avenue.

Looks like the function should be changed to retail.

What type of retail store is located here? If you Google this address, it still shows a Post Office located here.

I was referring to the post by the person who went there in 2007. If it’s still a post office, then it stays a post office.

Without actually seeing the building or a recent photo of it, I can’t be 100% sure of whats located there. I did another search of 3464 Jerome Avenue and that search returned: Mosholu Station Post Office at 3464 Jerome Avenue: Monday through Saturday, 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. The closest furniture store that I can find to this address is Furniture Zone at 3448 Jerome Ave. If this address is a retail store, I can’t find anything to confirm it.

The Davis Marcus name change came from a 1950 Skouras fund raising effort to benefit the United Jewish Appeal in aiding Israel’s development.

In his book MY HAPPY DAYS IN HOLLYWOOD, television director Garry Marshall (Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley) talks about working in the Tuxedo as a boy. He vividly recalls working there during a showing of Ingrid Berman’s GASLIGHT as well as attending it on Saturdays to watch Flash Gordon serials.

In Street View, it looks like the branch Post Office at this address occupies the former lobby of the theater. The furniture store that occupies some of the storefronts along the side of the auditorium advertises a 20,000 square foot showroom. That has to include the auditorium itself.

There is also a women’s clothing store in two of the storefronts, but it probably doesn’t extend into the auditorium. I don’t know why the Internet says the furniture store is at 3448 Jerome. In Street View that’s just a small building with an H & R Block office in it. Maybe the furniture store added that space to its operation since August, 2011, when Google’s camera car went by.
