Grange Theatre

Built in 1913 at a cost of $40,000, the Grange appears to have been in operation until at least 1921.

More information would be appreciated.

The Grange Theatre building still exists, in use as retail on the street level and a church on the 2nd floor. The address of the church is given as 7-11 Hamilton Place and I have it listed in the Film Daily Yearbook;1926 edition as the Grange Theatre, 7 Hamilton Place with a seating capacity of 482. It is not listed in the 1930 F.D.Y. or beyond.

However, in the American Motion Picture Directory 1914-1915 there is a double listing for a Hudson Fulton Theatre, West 136th Street & Broadway and also at 3 Hamilton Place. Now 3 Hamilton Place is on the corner of Hamilton Place, Broadway and W. 136th Street. Could this be the same theatre as the later named Grange? Looking at the actual corner site today(#3), it has been redeveloped into a small retail unit, but the other adjoining building remain, with numbers 7 thru 11 certainly looking like a former theatre.

Regarding my posting above about #3 Hamilton Place. It could be that the Hudson Fulton Theatre at this address (now demolished) could have been a small nickelodeon theatre.
