Advertised as showing movies in 1929 and 1935.

Although the address above places this theatre on 123rd street, a Paramount week ad in 1924 places another second avenue Palace at 45th street.

Great Memories. The theater was on 2nd Ave., between 123rd & 124th Sts. I lived around the corner in late 40s & 50s. It was a real grind house, changing programs (re-runs) 4 times a week, but they had the best Saturday matinees – 2/3 features, short, serial (Nyoka was my favorite), Cartoons, Contest & previews of coming attractions. The pleasurable hours there were well worth the $.25 admission ($.20 during the week) Of course, they had a strict matron with a flashlight to make sure you stayed in the Children’s Section. “The Last Picture Show” reminds me of it, small, intimate neighborhood movie house, not what you’d expect from a “Palace.”

Already open in 1923 according to a Paramount Week ad. Still open in 1953 according the Film Daily Yearbook.
