The Coliseum: The Original RKO Stage Exists!

These photos were taken this morning inside of the original theatre of the Coliseum, built circa 1920.

A view from the stage looking out over what used to be the orchestra pit and audience.

Looking house left towards one elaborate entrance.
Elaborate detail looking up where the curtain hung, partial view of the scrolled ceiling.

House right entrance.


  1. Do you know who owns it? How can it be reclaimed? Amazing stealth photos. Love it.

  2. Thanks Manhattanspeak! We don't know who the owners are yet, although there are several people trying to find out. It would be amazing to reclaim it! If you're on FB, find the Save the Coliseum page to join in on the conversation. Happy New Year!

  3. Great Pictures! How were you able to get in the Theater? Would love for my Husband to go and take some pics.
