The 72nd Street Playhouse opened in 1914 and was operated by the Consolidated Amusement Company chain until at least 1926. By the early-1940’s it had been renamed Granada Theatre and was operated by the Interboro chain. Small plush neighborhood theatre on the upper east side between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue or 3rd Avenue and 2nd Avenue, which I recall from the 1950’s that, for a time, it played RKO reissues.
Seating was very comfortable with red or maroon velvet seats similar in style to those at the Roxy Theatre and Radio City Music Hall. The 72nd Street Playhouse was closed early-November 1984 and has since been demolished.
