In 1950 the Stoddard was operated by Skouras Theaters, and was the site of the American premier of the Danish film “Red Meadows” on January 18, according to the January 21 issue of Boxoffice. Danish Ambassador Henrik DeKaufman and his wife were in attendance, along with members of the consulate staff and a number of literary celebrities.

If you go to the New Yorker site there is a picture of the Stoddard, then the Garden supermarket with the marquee in tact only showing “Garden”. It’s the second New Yorker on the search.

The Standard was showing films from at least 1916 and still advertising as the Standard in 1924. The Stoddard name did not appear until the early thirties.

Warren, I can attest to the STODDARD/STANDARD DAITCH SHOPWELL being on the west side FACING east as it was on Broadway. I grew up across the street from the New Yorker theatre, having worked there as well.

Great photo! I used to go grocery shopping there as a kid, because it became a DAITCH ( Shopwell ) grocery store. It still had the marquee up advertising the specials of the day!

A “Harrison” theatre advertised in 1994 as being on 89th and Broadway. Does anyone know what venue that may have been?

There is a small ad for the Stoddard from 1954 on the bottom of this page. They have a double bill of “Escape From Ft. Bravo” and “Give a Girl a Break"

My Great Great Uncle James (Jimmie) McDonald worked for the Stoddard Theater in New York City. I am not clear as to what his duties were there, but my Aunt thinks that he was in charg of the films. I have a picture of him taken in 1928 or 1929 standing on top of the Stoddard that I will post.
James McDonald was born in New York City, February 7, 1889, to Delia (Fearris) and Edward (Ned) McDonald.
