Two photographs of the Kingsbridge Theatre that I took in June 2005 from the Elevated platform of the Metro at Kingsbridge Road Station:

The April 28, 1921, issue of Engineering News-Record said that architect and engineer I. Margon was preparing plans for a theater and store building, 138x160 feet, on Kingsbridge Road at Jerome Avenue.

A few years after this theater was built, architect Irving Margon, then in partnership with Adolph Holder, would design, in association with Emery Roth, one of New York City’s iconic apartment buildings, the twin-towered Eldorado Apartments at 300 Central Park West.

As a kid I worked there after it was converted to an A&P food market. Never knew it was a theater.

I wonder if it was an ornate interior.
