The Riverside Theatre was built for the Shubert Brothers in 1912, along with the next-door Riviera Theatre, which has another theatre in the same building called the Japanese Gardens. All three theatres were designed by Thomas W. Lamb. The Riverside Theatre could seat 1,710. It, along with the Riviera Theatre, was part of the so-called “Subway Circuit” of legitimate houses in its earlier years.
In its later years, the Riverside Theatre (and Riviera Theatre) were part of the Skouras Theaters Corp. chain and later United Artists chain. Closed around May 1974, all three theatres have long ago been razed, and an apartment tower sits on the site today.
