News About This Theater
Probably one of the most famous theaters in New York. Originally opened on December 15, 1913 as a burlesque theatre. By 1930 it had gone over to screening movies as the 125th Street Apollo Theater.
It underwent a refurbishment and redecoration re-opening as the 125th Street Apollo Theatre on 26th January 1934 with a full stage show “Jazz a la Carte” and a British feature film starring Emlyn Williams “The Frightened Lady” (US title-“Criminal at Large”). Gradually stage shows became a more important part of the programme than the movies.
