Loew’s Greeley Square Theatre was opened prior to 1922. All I know about this theatre is that in May of 1938 they had a neighborhood run of Constance Bennett in “Merrily We Live” and Bobby Breen in “Hawaii Calls”.

I think that you are mostly correct about the Loew’s Weekly programs. I have four different ones from three different theaters. However, besides the column on page 2, the articles on page 3 are directly about the films showing that week, and they state the dates that the films are showing. The page 3 articles are certainly the same from theatre to theatre, but the headlines and films profiled were certainly changed depending on the theater.

I find the use of the singular “LOEW” in the programs above interesting. I have not seen that elsewhere.

In 1922 its seating capacity is listed as 2011 as a Loew house.

Since this was one of Marcus Loew’s earliest theatres to be built in NYC, it should probably be listed here as Loew’s Greeley Square. Unfortunately, it became obsolete when the midtown theatrical district moved further north and centered around Broadway above 42nd Street.
