The Waldorf was opened in 1926, designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp. The over-1000 seat theater stood on 50th Street at Sixth Avenue. The Waldorf operated as a marginally successful legitimate house until the end of 1933.
Turning to movies, the relatively small theater was no match for its enormous nearby neighbors, the Roxy and the Radio City Music Hall and lasted as a movie house until 1941, when it was converted over to retail use. The former theater was razed in 1967-68 to make way for construction of the Rockefeller Center’s Exxon Building.
