News About This Theater

Listed in the American Motion Picture Directory:1914-1915 edition as the Astor Theatre. By the time the 1926 edition of Film Daily Yearbook was published it had changed its name to St. Marks Theatre.
Later, this was a second-run theatre in Manhattan’s East Village on the northwest corner of St. Marks Place and 2nd Avenue. In the 1980’s it was a second run theatre offering films at a discount compared to what other films in Manhattan charged. They would run double bills and sometimes independent films. I believed they had midnight screenings each night of classic films. A Gap (since closed) replaced the theatre. By 2019 it was in use as a Verizon phone store and office space.
