Thank you for using Google.
I searched many sites about this theatre for its picture or more
details, but unfortunately, there is not much available. Here is what
I've found about Knickerbocker Theatre.
"The $150,000, 1,700-seat Knickerbocker opened in October 1917 at 18th
Street and Columbia Road. The lavish movie palace contained a
first-floor refreshment parlor, balcony tearoom, marble floors,
crystal chandeliers and a $4,000 organ. Its huge fans were said to
provide patrons with breezes akin to those of riding in an open car
going 25 mph.
Those fans were not needed, however, on the cold and snowy night of
January 28, 1922. Three hundred patrons had braved the city's worst
blizzard in more than 20 years to see the movie "Get Rich Quick
Wallingford." A little after 9 p.m., as the orchestra played an
intermission tune, a crack appeared in the theater's ceiling and
suddenly, weighed down by two feet of heavy, wet snow, the
Knickerbocker's roof caved in. Ninety-eight people were killed and 133
Reginald Geare was the architect who was involved in its design.
Painted nuts and bolts: Knickerbocker Theater, 1922.
After this incident of 1922, the storm was named as Knickerbocker
