The Waverly Theatre opened in May 1921. With a change of ownership in 1934 the theatre was renamed the 40th Street. The structure suffered a fire in 1945, was closed, and was replaced in 1948 with a new structure, and name, as the Colony Theatre. Theatre started showing X-rated films in 1974 which continued until closure in 1992.
