The Lakeland Theatre was located on Brighton Beach Avenue between Brighton Second and Brighton Third Streets. It was opened in 1925.

It was often called “the Dump”. Last operated by the Brandt Theatres chain, it has been closed since the 1950’s and there is a Russian nightclub there now which is named the National.
