This late Rapp & Rapp designed movie house, done in Art Moderne style in 1937, was located in the Chatham neighborhood, at the intersection of 79th Street and Rhodes Avenue.
For most of the 1930’s and 1940’s (and into the 1950’s), the Rhodes Theater was operated by the Warner Brothers (later Stanley-Warner) chain. From the mid-1960’s into the 1970’s, it was part of the Brotman & Sherman Theaters chain, which also acquired other former Warner houses such as the Avalon Theatre (New Regal), Capitol Theatre, and Met Theatre.
The Rhodes was open into the 80s, but, unfortunately, was demolished after it closed.
