Operated by F.F. Proctor, Proctor’s Pleasure Palace Palm Gardens was opened in 1895. The main auditorium on the ground floor opened with 2,200-seats. The building also contained a 300-seat German Concert Hall, a 1,000-seat Garden of Palms and 950-seat Roof Garden. By 1900, it was named Keith & Proctor’s Fifty-Eighth Street Theatre, until the partnership was dissolved in 1911. By 1914 it was showing movies and was known as Proctor’s 58th Street Theatre.
It was closed and demolished in 1927, and Proctor built his magnificent new 3,163-seat Proctor’s East 58th Street Theatre on the site, which opened December 20, 1928 (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).
