This large theatre opened in 1922 and was designated for the exclusive use of "negroes." This may have been a sign of the growing and empowered African American community in Harlem. By 1927 it was operated by the Meyer & Schneider circuit. The original Douglas Theatre, one block away, was a "whites only" house.
The New Douglas Theatre closed around 1940.
