The 1922 edition of the Brooklyn Eagle Almanac lists the seating caoacity as 1825 as opposed to a 1900 listing as 1671, that being before the Lamb renovation in 1906.

Until someone posts a more up to date seat count, NYC lists a motion picture theater at this address in 1923 with 613 seats on the main floor and 538 seats in the balcony. On November 3, 1939 it is a roller skating rink.

A Moller organ Opus 2017 Size 3/10 was installed in the Loew’s Circle Theater in 1914 at a cost of $4,500.

There is a remarkable photo of Columbus Circle, with a view of the exterior of Loew’s Circle Theatre in the book of photographs called “New York, Empire City 1920-45” by Daniel Stravitz. The photo must be from the 1920s silent era because the signage on the theatre reads “Photoplays: Symphony Orchestra and Organ.”
