On January 30th, 1944, this was being advertised in The New York Times under the name of New World, with the slogan “Theatre of Tomorrow.” Current was a sub-run combination of “A” features that had topped bills on the RKO neighborhood circuit, 20th-Fox’s Technicolor “Heaven Can Wait” and RKO Radio’s B&W “The Fallen Sparrow.” Performances were continuous from 1:00pm to 11:30pm, with a “late show” added on Saturday nights. Telephone number was OL2-6641.
