Previously known as

Norworth Theatre
Description
Eugene De Rosa, architect. Built by Jack Norworth, lyricist of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." He managed it only through the run of its first show. New management renamed it the Belmont and suffered two flops before booking a season of French drama and changing the name to Theatre Parisien. By 1920, it was once again the Belmont and remained so until 1933, when it shuttered, staying dark until 1937, when (after a four performance return to legit use) it became a movie house. Razed in 1951.
