Was torn down in the mid-60’s for the building of the Woodhull Hospital eyesore. Had been primarily showing Mexican double features, primarily of the Columbia Picture’s mariachi westerns type. Probably a Randforce theater, had been showing sub-run American films until the post-war period. Ornate plaster interior with a large dome ceiling. Instead of a balcony, the theater had a raised seating area with several rows that served as the smoking section; the snack bar, lounge and bathrooms were under this raised platform. The bright marquee illuminated the busy intersection of Broadway & Flushing Ave., usually shadowed by the BMT el tracks of the Jamaica line.
