The theater has been demolished in the past year and is now an empty lot.

This theater is being used by a warehouse and fabrication entity in the auditorium and a furniture store in the former lobby.

I wish to discourage anyone from entering this theater. The stairs have rotted away, there are holes in the floors and outside the building and some are quite deep. I would presume by the loss of one of the water tanks from the south side of the roof, the ladders having fallen off the building etc. It is quite unstable. The walls are in remarkably good shape. I have many more photos and some video but posting to this site is rather slow and I have more photos from other theaters in the New York City area. Does anyone know who the architect was for this theater? There is almost no research available on theaters in the Bronx unless it is the Opera House or the Paradise Theater. That means not at the Bronx Historical and New York Historical Societies, the NYPL Performing Arts branch etc. Thank you for whatever you might have on theaters in the South Bronx

I have many photos of this theater which was gutted and is now for sale. I am looking for any materials on this theater or the the one across the street, the President(Arcadia) or down the block, the Burland and the Empire. There is very little material to be found at the NYPL and nothing at the Bronx Historical Society. Anyone know who the architects were for these theaters?
