News About This Theater
A former single-screen neighborhood movie theatre, located directly across the street from the former Loews 34th Street Theatre showplace.
A conversion of a power station, the 34th Street East Theatre was opened on July 16, 1963 with Richard Harris in “This Sporting Life”. It was operated by Walter Reade-Stirling Theatres. Showing mostly upscale fare during its run, it closed it doors on September 11, 1997 with the decidedly downscale “Krull the Conqueror” starring Kevin Sorbo.
The space served as a lecture hall to Yeshiva University’s Geraldine Schottenstein Cultural Center. By early-2016 they had moved out and it was being demolished.
