This theatre opened as the Amphion Academy in 1888. Published in the New York Daily Tribune on January 8, 1888.
The Amphion Academy, Brooklyn’s new theatre, on Bedford ave., near Broadway, will be formally opened to the public by the National Opera Company on January 27 for a season of five evening performances and two matinees. The Amphion Club, which has a membership of 500, started the idea last winter of having a new theatre. It was then proposed to organize a stock company with a capital of $200,000. The proposition met with favor, and the building is nearly completed. The seating capacity will be 1,800.
The stage, it is said, will be one of the largest in the country, having a proscenium opening of thirty-eight feet, and a working depth behind the curtain line of fifty feet, with seventy two feet between the side walls and seventy feet in height to the rigging loft. The theatre it is said, is nearer to two thirds of the population of Brooklyn than any other theatre in the city. C. Mortimer Wicke is manager.
