The New Victory Theatre

The New Victory Theatre
The New Victory Theater opened in 1899 and is the oldest surviving theater in all of the theater district. It's had quite a life over the years as well, in the 30s becoming Minsky's Burlesque, and then in the 1970s, it became the street's first porn theater. If you remember the movie Taxi Driver by Martin Scorsese, it's right here in this theater that Robert De Niro brings Cybill Shepherd on their first date, which of course doesn't end very well. And then in the 1990s, the city took over the theater, cleaned it up, and relaunched it as a family theater where parents can bring their children. So, much more wholesome shows going on there today.
