They just turned the lot into a public park. Soon it will be completed with an AIDS Memorial wall.

Thanks for the link, David. Particularly liked seeing the poster and seeing Lon Chaney and William S Hart playing at the Sheridan.

A couple photos of the Sheridan in this recent Hopper video piece by the Whitney Museum of American Art. Copy & Paste to view.

Got it. Was pleasantly surprised when I visited MOMA in NYC earlier this year and came across a Hopper painting of the Sheridan interior. Great theater back in the day.

The second link at least works, didn’t try the first. Seems when posting a link to CT, it has to be in html code to be clickable with a mouse. Otherwise, you have to cut and paste the link. A younger coworker taught me the code recently (not that hard), so I’ll transpose below. You should see three vintage b&w photos of the Sheridan.

Link to Life magazine, then scroll through to page 57, 58, etc. (Just close the pop-up offer to join.) There’s a lot of interesting stuff in this special nostalgia issue.

So, St. Vincent’s buys the theater, tears it down and never builds anything, leaving a vacant lot. 40 years later St. Vincent’s is out of business. Karma is a bitch. Fuck them.

I became aware of this thatre a number of years ago while attending an off Broadway show which I believe was called In Gay Company. There was a song in that show that one character sang that he met his one true love in the balcony of Loew’s Sheridan Square.

And if you headed West (to the left) on Greenwich Ave, across from The Sheridan was the Greenwich theater.

Warren, when you put in 2-18 Seventh Avenue South it comes up with 18 Seventh Avenue South. Which is the wrong location.

Both of the other addresses map to the right location. So was the marquee at the 11th Street and Seventh Avenue side?

If you go with the above address, it maps to near Penn Plaza & 32nd. St.. FDYB has 12th. Street & 7th. Ave.. And if you use that 12th. Street location it maps right.

The address should be changed so the Google map shows the right location of 7th. Avenue & W 12th. Street. New York, NY 10011

i remember going to see a “SINBAD” movie at the loew’s sheridan (which we pronounced LOH'-EEZ) as a kid of 5 or 6. i grew up in the village and it was great to see a picture of the balcony i remembered but could never prove was real — until now!
