Clune's Broadway and Quinn's Superba
This 1916 view north on the 500 block of Broadway just misses the Pantages (now the Arcade Theatre) but we get its "vaudeville" vertical sign on the far right. The center of the card features Quinn's Superba, with the red ringed roof sign. To its right is Clune's Broadway (later called the Cameo Theatre), a 1910 design by Alfred Rosenheim. The card comes from the collection of Brooklyn-based theatre historian Cezar Del Valle.
