News About This Theater
Opened on October 13, 1927 with Ronald Colman in “Beau Geste” and vaudeville on the stage. The Loew’s Oriental Theatre was known for its lavish Oriental style décor. It was equipped with a Robert Morton 3 manual, 13 rank organ.
It was twinned in February 1977 with 1,076 seats on the orchestra level and 1,140 seats on the former balcony level. In February 1984 the balcony was divided into two auditoriums, making the theatre a triple-screen operation. It was closed on May 21, 1995.
The Loew’s Oriental Theatre has been converted into retail space, a common occurrence with many of the remaining theatres in New York City.
