Status needs to be changed from “Closed” to “Demolished.”

This is the 1922 drawing that appeared in the NYT. According to the article attached, the theatre was five stories high and cost $275,000 to build:

An architectural drawing of the theatre’s exterior can be found on page 114 of the May 7th, 1922 issue of The New York Times. The theatre was apparently originally intended to be called the Macdougal. In the drawing, that name appears on a corner vertical sign, with “MACDOUGAL” all in capital letters.

Judging from the 1923 image, the projection booth was at the rear of the ground floor, rather than at the back of the balcony.

This 1923 illustration shows that the Fugazy had a stadium section at the rear of the orchestra floor, as well as a conventional balcony:
