The Paradise Theater, formerly Loew's Paradise Theatre, is a movie palace-type theater and live entertainment venue located at 2403 Grand Concourse in Bronx, New York.
Loew's Paradise Theatre opened on September 7, 1929 with Warner Oland in the film The Mysterious Dr. Fu Manchu on the screen, plus a stage presentation "Cameos" produced by Chester Hale, and British organist Harold Ramsey playing the 4 manual, 7 rank Robert Morton "Wonder Organ".
The 23rd largest movie theater ever to be built in the United States was commissioned by the Paramount-Publix chain and was to be named the Venetian Theatre. Paramount-Publix withdrew from the project shortly before construction began and it was taken over by New York's largest movie theatre chain, Loew's Theatres. The theater was promoted as one of the five "Loew's Wonder Theatres".
