This was listed as the Pershing Theatre in the 1926 and 1927 editions of Film Daily Yearbook. It was on the west side of Amsterdam Avenue between 125th Street and LaSalle (or 123rd Street).
In the 1930 edition of Film Daily Yearbook it had been re-named Columbia Theatre, a name it retained until closing in the early 1950’s. The 1951 Film Daily Yearbook gives a seating count of 590. I believe it was demolished in around 1954.
I remember it from my childhood back in the early 1950’s when it played ‘family’ movies. I don’t remember it surviving the urban renewal around that time that built the projects on the south side of 125th Street between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway. I just remember going to the Saturday kids programs.
