Loew's Grand Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located on the corner of Fordham Road and Jerome Avenue in the Bronx. You can still see the painting on the brick wall that faces Fordham Road – “Loew’s Grand – Vaudeville and Photo Plays”. The paint is covered by a thin veil at the moment.

Completely gutted and turned into retail stores that took up the entire two floors. In the 1980’s it was a Loehmann’s clothing store, then a Lionel Kiddy City, a Wiz, and now a cheap department store called El Mundo.

Judging from the marquee, which features the film “New York”, in all likelihood the photo at the following site is from 1927 or 28:

So there is now nothing left of the old theater?

The auditorium of the Grand was long ago gutted completely and refitted with two or three complete levels. There is a college operating in it. The Wiz was in the former lobby and some of the other retail space.
