Opened as the Variety Photoplays, the venue began as a nickelodeon near Manhattan’s Union Square.
During its almost 90 year history, the theater went from first run films to adult movies and finally to off-Broadway theater.
The Variety served as a location for Martin Scorcese’s “Taxi Driver” during the scene in which Robert DeNiro’s character first meets Jodi Foster’s. It is also located, coincidentally, around the corner from the setting of the film’s final scene and shootout.
In October of 2004, the Variety’s owner, 110 Third Avenue Corporation, closed the theater after operating it since 1991 and in June of 2005, the theater was torn down.
