Greeley Theatre

Loew’s Greeley Square Theatre was opened on November 18, 1911. 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 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.

Another old Loews 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.

The March, 1912 issue of Architecture & Building has several photos and drawings of Loew’s Greeley Square Theatre starting on page 134 (Google Books scan.)

bamtino’s very first comment on this theater says that it opened on November 18, 1911.

If the article about the planned theater didn’t list the architect as S.S. Sugar (sounds like the name of a boat), I would swear it was Thomas Lamb. The exterior looks so “Lambsian”.
