The New York City Chapter of the American Guild of Organists provides this web page with information about the Moller organ installed in the 86th Street Theatre when Marcus Loew took over its operation in 1916.

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

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

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.

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?
