Fodor's Review

An opulent "hasheesh-dream decor" of Buddhas and elephant-type chairs made this a popular spot for viewing first-run movies starting in 1926. Though listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, the building continued to crumble for some time after. In 1998 it was restored to its past splendor and since then has had a second life as a home to Broadway shows.
