The Langley Hippodrome opened in 1913 for the Alfred Hamburger circuit in the Woodlawn neighborhood, and was located on E. 63rd Street at N. Langley Avenue. In 1915, it was renamed Langley Theatre.

In 1945, the theatre was remodeled by the Gollos Brothers chain which operated it by that time and renamed the 63rd Street Theatre. The theatre was closed four years later. The building that housed the theatre has since been demolished.

Old newspaper ads show the address as 702 E. 63rd. But newspapers have been known to make mistakes.
