Located just six blocks north of the former Art Deco style Metro Theatre, the modest Olympia Theatre had been a neighborhood favorite since it opened in 1914. It was operated by Golden Theatres by 1980 and they converted it into a triple screen theatre on December 19, 1980 and on June 26, 1981 it became a quad. Taken over by Cineplex Odeon it was reduced to become a twin-screen theatre on December 6, 1987.
The Olympia Theatre was also one of the cheapest places to see a first run movie in Manhattan, with its lower-priced matinees, until it last operators Clearview Cinemas closed it on December 19, 2002. It was gutted in January 2003. In October of 2003, the Olympia Theatre was demolished.
