Empty seats inside the American Airlines Theatre in Times Square New York City

American Airlines Theatre


Originally named The Selwyn Theatre, The American Airlines Theatre was built in 1918 by producers of the same name. In the 1930s it was converted to a movie house after suffering hard times due to the Great Depression.

The venue was purchased by the Roundabout Theatre Company in the late 1990s. It was extensively renovated and opened as The American Airlines theatre in 2000.
