Previous Names: Shore Road Theatre
Standing between 4th Avenue and 5th Avenue on 86th Street, the once grand Shore Road Theatre was originally opened by the Levine Brothers on March 15, 1924 with Lionel Barrymore in “The Unseeing Eye”. It was equipped with a 2 manual Marr & Colton organ. Last operated by RKO, it was closed in 1951 and has been used for retail for decades.
It once housed a disco and then the Wiz took over. But recently the electronics chain closed the store in a cost-cutting move, and it now sits waiting for a new retail use.
