As part of the Museum's construction and rehabilitation program proposed in 1944, the theater was renovated and enlarged to hold 2300 seats. The acoustics and projection were also modernized (1, 1944, p. 5, 25). The new auditorium was completed in the fall of 1959 (1, 1959, p. 3).
In May 2002, the Museum opened the fully renovated and state-of-the-art Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Theater. The new theater was carefully restored to its original architectural splendor and equipped with the latest technology (1, 2001-2003, p. 6).
