New Atlantic Theatre

The Atlantic Garden was opened by 1870. Alterations were made to the plans of architect Julius Kastner in 1883 to convert it into a concert hall. The address was 50-54 Bowery when the Atlantic Garden was listed in the 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Index. It was remodeled in 1916 to the plans of architect Henry Regelmann.

It was still open in 1926 with a seating capacity for 1,100. In 1927 it was listed as the New Atlantic Theatre with 800 seats, located at 52 Bowery, it was operated by the Meyer & Schneider circuit. Still open in 1929 but was closed and demolished in March 1929.

According to an index card in this PDF from the Theatre Historical Society, the building that became the New Atlantic Theatre was in operation as the Atlantic Garden by 1870, and was altered for use as a concert hall in 1883 with plans by architect Julius Kastner.

There was an aborted plan to build a new theater and 8-story office block on the site in 1911. Instead, it was remodeled in 1916 with plans by architect Henry (the card erroneously says Harry) Regelmann (plans for this project were noted in the November 17, 1915, issue of The New York Times.) Operated during its last years by the M&S Bijou circuit, the building was demolished in March, 1929.
