Loew's Grand Theatre

The Loew’s Grand Theatre was opened on February 19, 1927. It is located on the corner of Fordham Road and Jerome Avenue in the Bronx. It was equipped with a Robert Morton 3 manual 14 ranks organ. 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.

It was closed in 1957 and was 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.

Listings ended in the Loews ads in 1957.
