A theatre exhibited motion pictures here at least as early as 1914. It continued to do so until at least 1926.

It appears to have made way for Our Lady of Pompeii Church by 1926.

More information would be appreciated.

There is a remarkable painting of this theater titled CARMINE STREET THEATER by the famous turn of century artist John Sloan.

Ironically there is a Nun walking by the theater looking disapprovingly at children peeking in. Ironic because the building was removed and replaced by a large church which still stands at this site. Unoppressive Non-Imperialist Book Shop is currently across the street which ironically sells enormous numbers of cinema books every day.
