In the 1930-1931 season the Odeon had a banner year with the Yiddish Vaudeville it was built for. This theatre had a very happy ending, for a change.

The Odeon Theatre was demolished in 1932 and a row of single storey retail shops was built on the site, and they remain there today.

The Odeon was one of architect Thomas W. Lamb’s first NYC theatres and is dated 1910 in municipal records. The three-story brick and stone building was assigned the addresses of 58 through 62 Clinton Street, but FDYBs list it as 58 Clinton Street only.

In 1930, it resumed Yiddish performances after years of exclusively exhibiting films.

A Robert-Morton organ size 2/4 opus 75 was installed in the Odeon Theater in 1920. The organ was removed in 1931 and moved to Julius Hartt School of Music Hartford CT.
