5 people favorited this theater
The 1,800-seat Commercial Theatre was opened on September 18, 1920, for the Ascher Brothers circuit and later became part of the H & E Balaban chain.
The Commercial Theatre was located in the heart of the Commercial Avenue business district, near 92nd Street, and after a 1942 remodeling by architect Hal Pereira, it had a beautiful Art Deco style marquee lit with hundreds of bulbs in a zig-zag pattern.
After decades of first and second-run films, the Commercial Theatre closed in the 1960’s and has since been torn down.
