*****According to the July 3rd, 1937 edition of the New York Times, the New Amsterdam began that night as a "second-run"

movie house with the first movie being the Warners film version of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

 

In the late 1990's the theatre was restored to it's former glory by the Disney Corporation.

It is once again the most beautiful theatre on Broadway.
