N.p. N.p., Circa 1940s. Archive of seven vintage photographs showing both the interior and exterior of the Center Theatre in Rockefeller Center in New York City. The theatre was demolished 1954, the only one of the original buildings at Rockefeller Center to have been removed since its construction.
The exterior shots show include the marquee, advertising the 1939 Broadway play "The American Way," starring Frederic March, and "Hats Off to Ice," which ran for 889 shows from 1944 to 1946, making it the most popular of several ice shows produced for the theatre by Sonja Henie and Arthur M. Wirtz.
The remaining photographs are of the interior of the theatre, showing the lobby, seats, stage, and one of the famed chandeliers, with one of the photographs of the stage showing a rehearsal, complete with sets, for an unknown production.
