3 people favorited this theater
One of Chinatown’s many theatres. The building was constructed in the late-1890’s to the plans of architectural firm McKim, Mead & White. In 1913 architect Louis A. Sheinart was employed to draw up plans for a theatre in the building. It was opened as the Universal Photoplay by 1914.
There were further alterations made over the years and at one time it was renamed World Theatre. It became the Music Palace in early-1970’s screening Chinese movies and was last in use as the Chuan Kung Theatre.
