The City Concealed: United Palace Theater from on Vimeo.

NEW YORK, NY — For the latest episode of The City Concealed, we sent our crack team up to 175th and Broadway to explore the “Byzantine-Romanesque-Indo-Hindu-Sino-Moorish-Persian-Eclectic-Rococo-Deco” architecture of the United Palace Theater (opened 1930). They brought back some great footage of the church services currently held in the theater and two former Washington Heights residents revisiting the building for the first time in 50 years.

Check it out: Channel Thirteen.
