Architects: Thomas White Lamb
Previous Names: Shubert Riviera Theatre
Built in 1913 for William Fox by Thomas Lamb, the Riviera Theatre, it was later leased out to and booked by the Shubert Brothers Theatre Company. It had an upstairs theater called the Japanese Gardens Theatre (q.v.). The Riviera Theatre (and next door Riverside Theatre, also designed by Thomas Lamb) were part of the so-called “Subway Circuit” of legitimate houses.
It was later operated as part of the Skouras Theaters Corp. chain, and later became a United Artists movie theater. The Riviera Theatre, Riverside Theatre and Japanese Gardens Theatre have long since been demolished, replaced by an apartment tower.
