Current address range for this property is 101-115 W 116th St. A real estate search shows a 101.00ft x 196.00ft two story building with multiple stores located at this address. Build date given is 1920. Build date is not from the Department of Buildings. If the 1920 build date is accurate, this theater was demolished.

Here’s an image from local.live of the multiple storefronts at 101-115 West 116th Street. Looks like the sort of limestone facade and casement window design that are found along many of the older commercial thoroughfares around the boroughs of NYC. The Crown would have been towards the middle of the block at the left most lot line in this image (assuming # 101 is at the corner of Lenox).

It would also have been just about directly across the street from the Empress Theater, which operated briefly during the same period in the small low lying building to the left of the mosque (the corner building with the large green bulb on top) also shown in the image.
