I seem to recall there being a really nice Marquee Magazine article on the Union Square back in the 80’s.

A 1908 NYT article names the Keith & Proctor on 23rd Street as being renamed Bijou Dream, not this one.

The entire block bordered by 4th Avenue, Broadway, 13th, and 14th Streets had been cleared by the summer of ‘95; I remember passing by the then-boarded-off site at the time.

The Acme Theater was advertised in its later years as the only ‘American-Soviet Kino’, playing Russian movies. The address was 50 East 14th Street and the Film Daily Yearbook for 1926 give a seating capacity of 600. In the 1930 edition of F.D.Y. it is listed as having 597 seats.
