This theatre was part of the Loew’s chains of theatres.

I posted under the Kent Theatre that I thought I’d seen my first movie there, but it’s possible it was actually here. We lived off of E. 167th St. on the other side of the Concourse, so the Kent was closer, but I definitely remember walking down the hill on the other side to go to “Low-ees” as my father for some reason always pronounced it. And for some unknown reason, I have a distinct memory (suspect, as all memories from over 40 years ago are) of getting Raisinettes at the candy stand in the lobby of this theater.

I doubt there were many more stage productions of anything like “Bagels and Yox” after that. The Jewish population in that area was rapidly departing in the mid to late 60s. We moved from E. 167th and College Ave. to Queens in ‘63. My aunt had moved from Belmont Avenue to Concourse Village, on the other side of the Concourse near 161st St., around 1965 or 66. She hung on for a while, but moved to Florida in the early 70s. My uncle had lived in the vicinity of E. 167th and Sherman Ave., but moved to Central Ave. in Yonkers around '65 or '66.

Does anyone know the architect of this theatre?

I remember as a kid seeing the Beatles' movie “Help” in color at the Loew’s 167th street theater back in 1965. Man oh man where those memories sweet, I have fond memories of the Bronx back then…
