It’s one of the largest on Broadway, seating more than 1,500 people. Obviously, one of those places that inspired songs about love on Manhattan and those movie sequences with marquees lighting up as the characters paint the town red.

It is a NYC Landmark, both inside and outside, owned by The Schubert Organization. As told by Spotlight on Broadway, it was the largest legitimate house on Broadway when it opened, and one of the six theaters bought by the Chanin Brothers, who founded one of NY’s most successful construction companies.

Historian Matthew A. Postal says, Erwin Chanin began investing in Brooklyn and eventually decided on Broadway hiring the famous architect Herbert J. Krapp. It’s a tanned brick building with terracotta details (art deco going on art nouveau) and stadium seating.
