This little Art Moderne-style newsreel theatre operated inside the vast Grand Central Terminal from its opening on May 3, 1937 until about three decades later, when the space was gutted for retail use. The theatre also screened cartoons and short subjects. A large incandescent clock to the right of the screen reminded theatre-goers of the time. At the rear of the auditorium was a standing-room section, and a small bar was located near the theatre’s entrance.
It was located near track 17 and today the area is used as a wine shop, complete with the beautifully restored star-covered ceiling of the former theatre’s lobby.
