The Ogden Theatre opened in 1922 on Ogden Avenue near 171st Street. Operated by the Skouras Theaters Corp. chain, it was still open in 1950. The former theater now serves as a church.

When I moved into the neighborhood in February of 1956, this theater was closed. Sometime after that it reopened. Often triple features were shown in the afternoon- Bowery Boys, Tarzan, etc. Then second run double features were shown in the evening.

The January 21, 1922, issue of Real Estate Record and Builders' Guide published a list of major projects scheduled for 1922, one of which was a theater on Ogden Avenue north of 171st Street. The architect of the $100,000 project was listed as “Emilie De Rosa,” but I think it must have been meant to read Eugene DeRosa.

I found a later item in Record confirming that Eugene DeRosa was the architect of the Ogden Theatre. The general contract for the project had been let to M. Shapiro & Sons.
