Hamilton Theater, at 146th Street, was designed by Thomas Lamb on January 23, 1913.
Solomon Brill developed the theater. It was was originally named the Lafayette.
there was another nearby theater also named the Lafayette so they changed the name.
I remember the fantastic Movie Theaters in Houston, all gone now.
Somebody PLEASE Save these beautiful images of our History. What a shame to lose these Theaters.
Growing up, I remember there was an UPTOWN Theater in Houston.
The Uptown Theater in NYC designed by George M. Pollard
opened about 1926. It remained opened for almost forty years.
Then became a retail location. A supermarket now, it's possible that some
of the original details remain hidden above the current drop ceiling
OH!!! what a find that would be.
Do you still have beautiful old 1900 buildings
in your town? Post them we'd love to see them.
