The 25th Academy Awards ceremony took place at the RKO Pantages Theatre
in Hollywood, California, and the NBC International Theatre in New York City.

It was the first Academy Awards ceremony to be televised, and the first ceremony
to be held in Hollywood and New York City simultaneously. It was also the only
year that the New York ceremonies were to be held in the NBC International
Theatre
on Columbus Circle, which was shortly thereafter demolished and
replaced by the New York Coliseum convention center
