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 30s and 40s (and into the 50s), the Rhodes was operated by the Warner Brothers (later Stanley-Warner) chain. From the mid-60s into the 70s, it was part of the Brotman & Sherman Theaters chain, which also acquired other former Warner houses such as the Avalon (New Regal), Capitol, and Met Theaters.
The Rhodes was open into the 80s, but, unfortunately, was demolished after it closed.
