For what it is worth, the above photo was taken around October of 1936. The double bill playing at the Loew’s 86th Street is “Postal Inspector” with Ricardo Cortez (released 8/16/36) and “Blackmailer” with William Gargan (released 7/23/36). At the next door Grande, the main feature was a German language film “Hot Blood (Heisser Blut) with Marika Roekk and Paul Kemp, which was released on 9/25/36

Here’s a new link to an NYPL photo. Loew’s 86th is at left, opposite Loew’s Orpheum. Marquee west of Loew’s 86th is the Grande’s: nypl

A Brandt 86th Street theatre is still advertised in October 1963 but disappears shortly after.

Checkout the Loew’s Yorkville page for more details on the theatre Loew’s on this block.

The 1959 Film Daily Yearbook lists a Brandt 86th Street. If this was the only Brandt on 86th Street then it was open that late.

They’re all out there on the internet. You just need to spend some time searching for them.

In this vintage view looking west towards Central Park, the marquee of Loew’s 86th Street can be seen at left, almost directly across the street from that of Loew’s Orpheum. The marquee just to the west of Loew’s 86th Street belongs to the Grande Theatre (listed at CT as the 86th Street Grande): View link

Any pictures anyone?

Still listed in the 1953 Film Daily Yearbook as a Loew’s.

This entry is assuming that the Loew’s Yorkville closed in 1921 and that this location was the one that persevered through the forties with this name.

Does anyone know anything different?
