Previously operated by: Loew's Inc.
Architects: Eugene DeRosa
Located on the corner of Fordham Road and Jerome Avenue in the Bronx. You can still see the painting on the brick wall that faces Fordham Road - “Loew’s Grand - Vaudeville and Photo Plays”. The paint is covered by a thin veil at the moment.
Completely gutted and turned into retail stores that took up the entire two floors. In the 1980’s it was a Loehmann’s clothing store, then a Lionel Kiddy City, a Wiz, and now a cheap department store called El Mundo.

Judging from the marquee, which features the film “New York”, in all likelihood the photo at the following site is from 1927 or 28:

So there is now nothing left of the old theater?
The auditorium of the Grand was long ago gutted completely and refitted with two or three complete levels. There is a college operating in it. The Wiz was in the former lobby and some of the other retail space.
Three photographs I took of the Loew’s Grand Theater in June 2005:
Not a lot of post for an NYC Theatre.
