Opened in 1925, Loew’s New Rochelle Theatre closed in the late 1980’s. By then, it had been converted into a twin-screen and was operated by RKO. It later operated as a nightclub, which has since closed.

For a theater with this kind of pedigree….Thomas Lamb, 2,500 seats, Loew’s and with its own newsletter no less, it is disappointing that there is precious little info about this theater on this page.

Apparently the theater still stands. What was the architectural style? Did it retain any of its interiors when it was twinned or when it was converted to a nightclub? What remains of the theater today? Is it salvagable?

On June 21st, 1960, Loew’s New Rochelle presented a “Miss No-Cal” Beauty Contest on stage. I wonder who won?

Facade painted black? Cast stone and terra cotta originally, I’d imagine. Whatever they slapped over the facade has to be wrecking the integrity of the underlying material(s).

The front facade is now being cleaned back to its shiney white. The box office area remains boarded up. What is going in here?

This theatre is still standing but redevelopment in this part of New Rochelle is sluggish. It is located across the street from the former Brandt’s Town Theatre that is currently being use as a furniture store in the lobby. The theatre is twinned but could be a nice cultural art’s centre.
