Knickerbocker Theatre

Venue Placeholder

The Knickerbocker Theatre opened as Abbey’s Theatre on November 8, 1893. As the Knickerbocker, it premiered the operetta The Red Mill in 1906, and producer Charles Dillingham built a large windmill outside of the theatre to advertise the musical. This was Broadway’s first moving electrical sign. The theatre was demolished in 1930.
