Manhattan Storefront / Joyce Theater / 8" x 8" Print
The Joyce Theater was born in this gorgeous Art Moderne building in 1941 as the Elgin Theater. The Elgin had a colorful evolution that spanned first-run and foreign films, theatrical productions, experimental films (including Kenneth Anger and Andy Warhol), and the country's first midnight movie series. By 1978, the theater was shuttered. Philanthropist LuEsther Mertz, of Publishers Clearing House fame, purchased the museum and funded its complete renovation and conversion into the nationally-acclaimed dance theater that it is today. The building was officially reopened in 1982 as The Joyce (named after Mertz's daughter), retaining much of its architectural detail. Designer Ted Zahn pays tribute with this illustrated portrait of the Joyce's facade and marquee.
