Doubled as Chicago’s Gate of Horn club for the film “Inside Llewyn Davis”.

There are three photos and a floor plan of Loew’s Seventh Avenue Theatre on pages 354 and 355 of the October, 1910 issue of Architects' and Builders' Magazine (scan at Google Books.)

At the bottom of this page is a mention of the “THE BLUE PEARL” being cancelled when the star had an accident.

The “Camille” advertised on the marquee is a silent film from 1926, starring Norma Talmadge. I’m not saying that the 7th Avenue didn’t produce legitimate plays, because I know nothing of this theatre’s history, I’m just saying that the photo you posted shows the theatre advertising a movie, not a play.

To clarify,

I don’t see where it says Harlem Casino Theatre here. It was indeed a nightclub before Loews took it over.

The photo is of the Loews movie theatre playing “CAMILLE”. At times during its movie years it would stop showing movies and play legitimate plays. No other Loews house did that.

I don’t understand the first post on this theatre’s page. The 7th Avenue Theatre may have sometimes put on legitimate theater, I don’t know anything about that, but the photo shows the marquee advertising Norma Talmadge’s silent film, “Camille”.

The Seventh Avenue, the only Loews house to sometimes play legitimate theatre.
