Sloan painted the theater in 1912 so it was open then. I would like to hear from anyone who knows when it opened.

There is a remarkable painting of this theater titled CARMINE STREET THEATER by the famous turn of century artist John Sloan.
Link and story is at: View link

Ironically there is a Nun walking by the theater looking disapprovingly at children peeking in. Ironic because the building was removed and replaced by a large church which still stands at this site. Unoppressive Non-Imperialist Book Shop is currently across the street which ironically sells enormous numbers of cinema books every day.
