The Schuyler Theatre’s name was misspelled by Motion Picture Daily in its item of April 1, 1937, about the opening of the house: “Zimmerman, Noble and Yoost will open the new Schuler at 84th St. and Columbus Avenue tomorrow night.”

Colon is Spanish for Columbus, so the name change did have some merit.

Colon should be added as an aka name here.

For several years the Paramount Week ads featured a Schuyler Theatre at 251 West 82nd street and therefore on Broadway, not Columbus. Were there two?

This theatre is mentioned in Rogelio Agrasanchez, Jr.’s excellent book MEXICAN MOVIES I N THE UNITED STATES.

The SCHUYLER is listed as the COLON when showing Spanish Language movies.
