9. The Midtown Theater
The Midtown Theater was completed in 1933 and designed by Russell M. Boak and Hyman Paris in the Art Deco style. In 1982, the theater was taken over by Daniel Talbot and renamed the Metro Theater (the name that still adorns the marquee). During a recent renovation, the interior of the theater was gutted. Images of the theater’s former interior can be seen in The New York Times. The theater currently remains an empty shell of what it once was while it awaits its next tenant.
