Opened as the Peerless, this theater, located on 138th Street at Alexander Avenue in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx later was known as the Mott Haven and finally the Haven. It’s been demolished and replaced by housing.

Any additional information on this theater would be appreciated.

Film Daily Yearbook,1930 lists this as the Peerless Theatre with 562 seats. The 1941 edition has it as the Haven Theatre with 563 seats, as does the 1943 edition, but by then it is listed as closed.

It is not listed in F.D.Y. editions 1950 or 1957.

Listed in the American Motion Picture Directory 1914 – 1915 edition as the Peerless Theatre, 314 E. 138th Street, Bronx, NY.

The Film Daily Yearbook’s;1926 and 1927 editions list the Peerless Theatre, 314 E. 138th Street, Bronx, NY with a seating capacity of 286. Obviously the theatre was doubled in size by 1930, possibly by expanding into adjacent properties?
