Originally built as the Alcazar Theatre in 1913 (top left), later renamed the York Theatre (top right, circa 1953). Located at 639 Commercial Drive, it was designated during its punk rock days in the 80s and 90s as the New York Theatre. After a stint as the Raja Cinema, the building was derelict by 2009, when the middle three images were captured. The building was renovated and reopened as the York Theatre in 2013 (bottom image, from 2019). Hüsker Dü played the New York Theatre on 25 Oct 1985. Bob Mould Band played there on 09 Nov 1990.
