In 1912, William Fox hired Thomas Lamb to design this building, consisting of a theater, stores, offices, and a second-floor ballroom. Encompassing a full city block at W 166th Street & Broadway, the building was wrapped on three sides with a polychrome terra-cotta facade and topped with a cornice.

On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was assasinated in the ballroom during a rally for the Organization of Afro-American Unity.
