This is supposed to be the building that Edward Hopper depicted in his 1936 cityscape painting “The Circle Theater”.

The ground site is currently occupied by the corner entrance to the Time-Warner Shopping Center at the intersection of Broadway and West 60th Street. A distinctive marquee for Jazz at Lincoln Center marks the spot 24/7.

My grandfather worked there in 1918. Oh, thank God my mother is dead.

The 1922 edition of the Brooklyn Eagle Almanac lists the seating caoacity as 1825 as opposed to a 1900 listing as 1671, that being before the Lamb renovation in 1906.

There is a remarkable photo of Columbus Circle, with a view of the exterior of Loew’s Circle Theatre in the book of photographs called “New York, Empire City 1920-45” by Daniel Stravitz. The photo must be from the 1920s silent era because the signage on the theatre reads “Photoplays: Symphony Orchestra and Organ.”
