No one has favorited this theater yet
The Little Lenox Theatre was primarily a live performance space but, through much of the 1930s, presented matinee movies for children on Fridays and Saturdays.
It was, at various times, also known as the Lenox Theatre (1917-1918), not to be confused with the uptown Lenox Theatre at Lenox Ave. and W. 111th, and the Lenox Hill Theatre (1923-1925), not to be confused with the later Lenox Hill Theatre at 331 East 70th Street. For a brief period, the performance space was known as the East 78th Street Playhouse (1963-1964).
I believe the theatre and the building in which it was situated were part of Finch College, which closed in the mid-1970s, and that the edifice still stands as a 40-unit cooperative apartment building.
More information (and inevitable argument about whether this theatre should be listed) would be welcome.
