Civic Repertory Theatre

This theatre should not be confused with the New 14th Street Theatre aka Metropolitan Theatre which was located on E. 14th Street.

Theatre Francais was built in the 1860’s. The theatre was designed by architect Alexander Saeltzer. Theatre Francais was originally built to be used for French language plays and opera. By 1900, after a number of name changes, Theatre Francais was known as the 14th Street Theatre.

Movies were shown at the 14th Street Theatre from around the 1910’s until the early-1920’s. By 1926 the name of the theatre was changed again to the Civic Repertory Theatre. The theatre building was demolished around 1939.
