Empire Theatre

234 W 42nd Street

Opened: 1912

Built as the Eltinge 42nd Street Theatre. Converted to films in 1942 and renamed Laff Movie. Renamed after the demolished Empire Theatre (1430 B'way 1893-1953) in 1954. The theatre was largely demolished and the landmark facade was moved 100 feet (?) west to be incorporated into a completely new 25 screen, 5000 seat movie theatre that was part of the redevelopment of 42nd street in the mid 90's. (Empire reference), (Harris / Anco reference).
