Cinema Verdi


104 W. 39th St., New York, NY
Seats (approximate): 300

William A. Swasey, architect. Built by producer F. Ray Comstock, actor-director Holbrook Blinn, and the Shuberts to present short plays, inspired by Paris' Grand Guignol. When this proved unpopular, the policy was changed. It was renamed for actress Lucille La Verne when she appeared in "Sun-Up" in 1928--only to revert back to the Princess six months later. Later, it was the recreation center for the Ladies Garment Worker's Union, then a movie house. Finally, in June of 1955, it was torn down.

Built: 1913    Closed: 1926    Demolished: 1955
