The United Palace Theatre was the last of the Loew's "Wonder Theaters" to be built in New York, one of the most elaborate work of architect Thomas Lamb. Its facade is decorated in a blocky, stylized version of the Mayan style. The walls of the auditorium are embellished with Indo-Chinese decoration and the foyer features a palatial staircase leading to a grandiose, aurora borealis headed by a goddess decoration. The theatre hosts many multi-cultural concerts, art exhibits, worship services, classes, and festivals. It is located at 4140 Broadway in Washington Heights in northern Manhattan.
