The Broadway Theatre is one of a select few legitimate theaters that was originally built as a movie house. Its seating capacity of 1,765 made it ideal for the changeover to musical theater in 1930. It showed movies for a brief period again in the 1950s but has been a legitimate theater ever since.

It is currently owned and operated by the Shubert Organization and continues to be one of the largest Broadway theaters.
