☞ ARCHITECTURE: The Odeon Theatre

Another former theatre-turned-church is the Odeon on West 145th Street between FDB and ACP. Opened in 1910 as a vaudville venue, the theatre eventually converted to completely showing motion pictures by 1925. The St. Paul Community Church currently occupies the building which had its last days as a cinema sometimes in the early 1960's. The nearest subway to the former theatre is the A,B,C,D train at 145th Street. Photo by Ulysses
