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.

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.

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.

A Wurlitzer organ Opus 576 Style 160 was installed in the Ogden Theater on 9/27/1922.
