United Palace Theatre

4140 Broadway
Manhattan, NY 10033
Washington Heights/Inwood


The United Palace originally opened in 1930 as the Loew's 175th Street Theater, presenting vaudeville and "talking pictures." With its spectacular Thomas Lamb design, described by some as "Cambodian neo-Classical," it was the last of the five Wonder Theatres to be built in the metropolitan area. The theater is now a booking operation that has brought performers such as Adele, Bob Dylan, Sam Smith and John Legend, as well as film and TV shoots that include The Blacklist, Annie and The Following. It is the fourth largest theater in Manhattan with close to 3,400 seats.
