Your earlier entry on the Columbia seen here was the later Alcazar Theatre.
/theaters/7747/

The info above could be added to that listing.

erikf commented about Oxford Theater on Aug 13, 2006 at 8:18 am

The Oxford and Casino were seperate facilities as seen on Plate 34 of the Brooklyn 1912 E. Belcher Hyde map. The Casino was located across the street and to the west of the Oxford on the triangle wedge between Flatbush and State officially at 98 Flatbush. The Casino was a bowling alley by the end of World War II and the Oxford was destroyed in a fire on July 14, 1951.

If you can paste this entire link, it will show a 1940 photo of the Oxford from the New York Public Library.
