Lucky Star Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

A motion picture theatre (or at least, a theatre building which was used for some time to exhibit motion pictures) existed at this site from at least 1920. By 1927 the Lucky Star Theatre was operated by the Meyer & Schneider circuit. It operated through 1957.

The site housed a police precinct from 1853 – 1912, I don’t know if the building was torn down when they left for 321 East 5 street and a new one built for the theatre or they just moved into the old stationhouse. I ordered the tax photo (block#446 lot#29) and it shows a three story building with a “Lucky Star Photo Plays” marquee.
The NYPL photo archive also has a view of the front of the building from across First Avenue – looking under the EL. Let me know what you find out
