The Art Theatre was opened in late-1922. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer organ. I’ve been told that this theatre showed Yiddish language films in the 1930’s and 1940’s … and was located in the East Bronx near 180th Street and Vyse Avenue. The Ritz Theatre was closed by Liggett-Florin Booking Service on December 3, 1950.
I would appreciate it if anyone remembers other Bronx theatres that showed Yiddish movies.
