The Art was at 620 Broadway. It was initially operated by V.U. Young and C.J. Wolf. Young and Wolf owned several inter-related companies that in turn owned and or operated theaters. In September 1920 A.B. Marcus sold the Art to Julius Nussau.

In early 1922 Walter Eschenbach re-opened the 300-seat Art. It was managed by Charles Mazzone.
