The Queen’s Theatre was opened prior to 1914 and was still operating in 1928. It was operated by the Queen’s Theater Co. In 1929 it was renamed Arcadia Theatre. Around 1951 it had been renamed Baronet Theatre. Later a second screen was built on top of the Baronet Theatre and it was renamed Baronet and Coronet Theatre. The former Baronet & Coronet was once one of the hottest places to see first run films on New York’s Upper East Side during the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Sadly, it’s once famous façade and reputation declined in the past 25 years and the theatre finally closed in September 13, 2001. The old Baronet & Coronet lettering and crowns could still be seen through decades of dirt caked on to its fading exterior.
The theatre has been demolished to make way for an office building.
