The ill-fated New Theatre was financed by a number of wealthy New Yorkers as a non-profit theatre, but acoustical problems lead the backers to walk away from the venture. It was renamed the Century Theatre in 1911 and converted to commercial use. It was demolished and replaced by the Art Deco Century Apartments in 1926.
