New Victory Theatre


207 W. 42nd, New York, NY
Seats (approximate): 1100

Albert Westover, architect. Built by Oscar Hammerstein. In 1902, leased to David Belasco, who remodeled it and renamed it for himself. In February of 1931, Billy Minsky's burlesque took over. In 1942, it was a second-run movie house, the Victory. It showed pornographic movies in the 1970s and 80s but more respectable fare had returned by the time it closed in the early 1990s. In December of 1995, it reopened as the New Victory, a beautifully restored playhouse for family entertainment.

Built: 1900
