Save Theatre 80 and 78-80 St. Mark’s Place

Save Theatre 80, 78-80 St. Mark’s Place

The historic Theatre 80, and the buildings in which it’s located at 78-80 St. Mark’s Place, are imminently endangered. Intervention is needed by the City to save them, and we must urge our leaders to act now.

The beloved Theatre 80 in the East Village is currently endangered. The fate of this cultural institution — site of great theater and film revivals for six decades —and the theater’s home at 78-80 St. Mark’s Place are in doubt following a recent auction. The two buildings, built ca. 1845, are two of the oldest still standing in the East Village. Village Preservation is seeking landmark status for the buildings, which would ensure they are preserved and their history is honored no matter who owns them.
