Seats (approximate): 2800

In 1895, Oscar Hammerstein opened an entertainment complex for which one fifty-cent ticket admitted you to two main auditoriums (Lyric, Music Hall), two small theatres (Concert Hall, Roof Garden), an Oriental cafe, bowling, and billiards. On June 29, 1898, the debt-laden Olympia was auctioned. The Music Hall reopened as the New York Theatre. In 1912, it was the Moulin Rouge for the run of "A Winsome Widow," starring Mae West. In 1915, it became part of the Loew's movie/vaudeville chain.
