Loew's Lincoln Square

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Listed as the Lincoln Square Theatre in the American Motion Picture Directory 1914-1915. Ornate inside, as were most Loew’s theaters in their heydey.

A midnight blaze destroyed the theater and six story office structure on January 30, 1931. The theater had just emptied moments before.

The Julliard School opened on the site in 1969.

A December 1951 article on the New York Times says it was already a CBS studio so that may be the year it stopped showing films.

Nice find. I have only seen photos of this place when it is on fire.

Here’s another exterior view, but probably on 66th Street, since no entrance is shown, only exits: View link

It should be noted that the site currently includes a well known performance space in Alice Tully Hall, which recently underwent an ambitous redesign and renovation that was completed in 2009.

The Marcus Loew plaque from this theater is currently up for auction on ebay, item number 271204780383. the plaque apparently survived the transformation of the building into CBS Studio 60.

Programs that originated from CBS Studio 60 included “I’ll Buy That,” “Double or Nothing,” “It’s Magic with Paul Tripp,” and “The Robert Q. Lewis Show.”
