The 1993 NYCLPC Landmark Designation Report for the Jaffe Theatre (now City Cinemas Village East) listed the Bluebird Theatre among the other Manhattan works of architect Harrison G. Wiseman.

The Bluebird was re-named Ramona in October, 1928, according to a report in New York State Exhibitor at the time. Why “Ramona?” Probably due to the tremendous popularity of a song called “Ramona,” which was “inspired” by that year’s movie of the same name starring Dolores Del Rio.

It was still listed as the Bluebird Theatre in the 1926 edition of Film Daily yearbook, but by the 1930 edition of F.D.Y. it is listed as the Ramona Theatre.
