Located on the southwest corner of Broadway and W. 30th Street. It was built in 1867 as a museum/theatre by John Banvard. In 1868 it was renamed Wood’s Museum and Metropolitan, presenting light variety and musical comedy. In 1876 it was taken back by John Banvard and renamed Broadway Theatre.
It was operated by Augustine Daly from 1879, renamed Daly’s Theatre, and he operated it until his death in 1899. It was then operated by a succession of managers, including the Shubert Brothers, and later went over to burlesque.
Turned to movies from 1916 to 1920, when it was demolished.
