Loew's Fairmount Theatre, Bronx, NYC

Located at 708 E. Tremont Avenue in the East Tremont district of Bronx, New York City. The Fairmont theatre opened on 12th September 1928. I was designed in a French Renaissance/semi-Atmospheric style by architect Joseph Orlando and had a seating capacity of 2559. It was equipped with a Robert Morton 3Manual/19Rank organ and had full stage facilities for Vaudeville shows.

 

Operated by Loew's from opening until the late 1950's, it went over to Independent management and eventually closed. After a short period of time as a Hispanic museum, it was converted into a 4-screen cinema in 1986 which lasted until final closure in the early 1990's. It was converted into a supermarket which continues today.
