3 people favorited this theater
This theater became part of the Keith-Orpheum Circuit. James Cagney made his acting debut here as a chorus girl. The theater was later known as the RKO 81st Street Theatre when the Keith-Orpheum became part of RKO.
Today, the original theater entrance has been preserved as a grand lobby for a 21 story high rise apartment building.
"Love Sydney" and "Sesame Street" were shot here in later years.
Last known information was that Conran’s home supply store occupied the former theater’s upper level.
The former theater was demolished in 1986 except for its facade to make way for an apartment building.
