Built in 1900, off Herald Square, out of three former residences on 33rd Street and 34th Street, Schley’s Music Hall was designed by Michael Bernstein and designed in late-Victorian style, with touches of Neo-Renaissance decor. It seated about 840, on strange folding type-chairs, as well as a pair of small balconies and six sets of boxes on either side of the ornate proscenium arch.
Just a few months after opening, Schley’s Music Hall was under new management and was renamed the Savoy Theatre. Live theatre and variety shows remained on the bill at the Savoy Theatre for just over a dozen years, when the theatre was converted into a movie house. It was last operated by the Cinema Circuit Corp. chain, and was closed in early-1952 and demolished later that year. It was the last vestige of Herald Square’s days as a theatre district.
