Situated on the Upper East Side near 108th Street, the Verona Theatre first opened circa 1926-27. In the wake of the Depression, the late-run “indie” closed for a couple of years, and then re-opened around 1938 under the new name of Victory Theatre. By 1941, trade directories listed the Victory Theatre as closed, but it may have had a short life after that as the Rex Theatre.
The 1947 Film Daily Year Book lists the Rex Theatre as closed, but with an address of 2086 Second Avenue and 1,100 seats. The similarities in address and seating capacity suggest that the Verona/Victory and the Rex were the same theatre.
