Circle Theatre

1825 Broadway at 60th St., New York, NY

Charles Cavenaugh (1901) and Thomas W. Lamb (1906), architects. Owners Charles Evans and W.D. Mann intended (in 1900) for it to be a vaudeville house but disputes with the nearby Church of the Paulist Fathers forced a policy of high-class orchestral fare, which proved unpopular. Remodeled in 1906, it re-opened as a legit venue. In 1935, a bomb (a result of theatre labor disputes) damaged the box office and lobby. In 1939, the interior was transformed into the Columbus Circle Roller Rink. Razed in 1954.

Built: 1901     Closed: 1935    Demolished: 1954
