Loews Orpheum 2

168 E. 86th

Upper East Side

(demolished 1991)

The Loews Orpheum opened in October of 1913 and featured a Kimball 2 manual rank organ.  In 1968, the theatre was twinned with the 995 seat Orpheum and the 599 seat Cine’ 3rd Ave.  It was re-named the Loews Orpheum in Dec. of 1979 where it remained until it was demolished in 1991.  Two years later the Loews Orpheum 7 opened on the same site where it remains today as the AMC Orpheum 7.  Its most recent review says: “The seating is a bit tight, but the popcorn is yummy.”
