The Hudson Theatre opened in 1912 as a purpose built motion picture theatre and was still listed in the 1937 Film Daily Yearbook. By the 1941 edition it was closed.

A 1912 issue of the quarterly Bulletin of the American Institute of Architects ran the obituary of architect Charles Henry Israels, which named a Hudson Theatre as one of the projects in which he was engaged. As this house is the only Hudson Theatre in New York City from the period of Mr. Israels' death that is listed at Cinema Treasures and not yet attributed to another architect, it seems the most likely candidate for his project.

Israels was a fairly well known artist and architect in his day, but the Internet reveals that his widow, under her later name, Belle Moskowitz, far surpassed his fame.

The entire even-numbered blockfront between West 157th and West 158th Street is now occupied by a building known as Thurgood Marshall Plaza with an address of 1970 Amsterdam Avenue. There is also a recently constructed building behind this structure running parallel, the full width of the block. Appears that the Hudson Theatre should be listed as “demolished.”
