The Theatre Historical Society confirms Irving Margon as the architect of the Hub/Rex Theatre, and says that the building was demolished in 1976.

This web page says that a style 110 Wurlitzer organ, opus 421, was installed in the Hub Theatre in 1921. It was replaced by a style E Wurlitzer, opus 1101, in 1925. The Hub was most likely this project noted in the June 11, 1921 issue of Real Estate Record and Builders' Guide:

“Irving Margon, 355 East 149th st, has completed plans for a 1-sty brick moving picture theatre, 50x151x50x122 ft. on the south side of Westchester av, 128 ft south of Bergen av, for A. Santini, 441 East 149th st. owner. Cost, $70,000.”

If the address above is correct, the Hub was also known as the Rex Theatre circa 1940-41.
