This theatre, along with the Eltinge (Empire), Gaiety, and Irving Place, was temporarily shut down during the 1937 crackdown on Burlesque.

The Peoples operated at least from 1930 to 1941.

The BLVD is part of a newly constructed high-irse, an example of the rampant gentrification of the Bowery and the rest of the Lower East Side.
