11. The Rialto TheatrePhoto from Library of Congress.
The documentary With Byrd at the South Pole would actually open in 1930 at the Rialto Theatre in Times Square on the corner of 42nd Street. The film would win an Academy Ward for Best Cinematography, the only documentary to win this award to date. Billy is seen in the documentary building an igloo and unloading supplies.
The theater was demolished in 2002 and a high-rise building sits in its place now (where ESPN Zone is located).
