Previous Names: Fox Crotona Theatre
The Fox Crotona Theatre was one of William Fox’s first large theatres and had Thomas W. Lamb as architect. The Beaux Arts auditorium was wainscoted in marble with walls covered in red tapestry. The Crotona Theatre first opened in 1912 with vaudeville only, but movies were soon added to the programs. During the silent era, the Crotona Theatre boasted a twelve-piece orchestra and a three manual Moller organ (Op. 216).
After Fox’s bankruptcy, the Crotona Theatre switched to Skouras Theaters Corp. management, which operated the theatre until closure in 1959. It became a warehouse in the auditorium, and the lobby became a mattress & furniture store.
