Originally opened as the Rowe Theatre with 1,220 seats. By 1922 it had been re-named Victory Theatre, and by the early 1940’s was operated by the Skouras Theatres Corp. chain through to the late-1950’s. It was equipped with Simplex projectors and Peerless Magnarc lamps.

The Victory Theatre was last operated by United Artists and was demolished in 1972.

The 1953 Film Daily Year Book claims 806 seats, though the 1930 edition, the first to have a listing for this theatre, says 950…During the year-end holidays of 1953, the Skouras Victoria was one of seven Westchester theatres with that county’s first engagements of the CinemaScoped “The Robe,” along with the RKO’s in Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, White Plains and Yonkers, Skouras' Capitol in Portchester, and United Paramount’s Paramount in Peekskill. This was after “The Robe” had finished its record-breaking run at the Roxy Theatre in Manhattan.
