Address was 544 Southern Blvd, not South Blvd…

This might have been larger than reported in the introduction. Film Daily Year Book listings for both the Congress and the Ace give a seating capacity of 1,800. And a news item in The New York Times of May 23, 1930 says that on the previous Saturday, nearly 2,000 underprivileged children attended a free performance and party at the Congress Theatre at Southern Boulevard and 149th Street in the Bronx.

Here is an undated photo from the Google site. As has been pointed out, the resolution is poor. I’ve been working on it but this is the best I can do for now.

The Ace was listed at 554 Southern Boulevard in the 1960 Bronx yellow pages. Phone number was MOttHvn 9-4841.

That may be true in some cases, but if you compare the Google photo from 6/30/08 with your photo from the same day, they both show the same building.

Like everything else, Yellow Page directories often contain mistakes. A current one for Queens, for example, lists the Colony Theatre in Jackson Heights, which was converted to retail ages ago.
