Never heard of LOEWS HOLLYWOOD, but check out the story of LOEWS Avenue B build on the site of Marcus Loew birthplace.

That would be the Loews Hollywood, see the listing with photos on this site. And there’s a link to a photo from when it was operating.

If the Avenue A was on 4th Street (where the Ageloff Towers stand) then what theater was on Avenue A between 6th and 7th, the building still standing?

In 1929 the existing buildings on this block were demolished to erect two apartment blocks called Ageloff Towers, still standing, that have some nice deco details.

The Avenue A is listed in Film Daily Year Books through the 1929 edition, with 600 seats reported. It is not listed in the 1930 edition or any thereafter. It probably wasn’t worth the expense of being “wired” for sound movies.
