Weber's Music Hall

Broadway (29th & 30th Sts.), New York, NY

A musical variety house. Leased to the Weber & Fields comedy team in 1896, who made it a popular entertainment venue. But, in 1906, the duo ended their partnership (it would prove to be only temporary) and the theatre was renamed Weber's Theatre. In 1913, it became a movie house and remained so until it was torn down for offices in 1917.

Built: 1892     Closed: 1913    Demolished: 1917
