The Jefferson Theatre opened in 1913 as a B.F. Keith’s vaudeville theater in what is now known as the edge of the East Village. Later the RKO Jefferson Theatre, this theater was located at 214 E. 14th Street near Third Avenue. The entrance was a narrow space between two tenement houses with the bulk of the theatre (auditorium) located in 13th Street.
The RKO Jefferson Theatre operated until at least 1977. It lay empty for over two decades and was demolished in 2000. Today, the site is filled with bricks and debris from the demolition and the old Jefferson Theatre has passed on.
