Brandt Theatre 1954

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Brandt Theatre is shown as open and seating 525 in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook. The theater stood on East 154th Street, between Lexington and Turlington Avenues. The theater, like the rest of Harvey’s former movie houses, has since been torn down.

Any further information on the Brandt would be appreciated.

I ran across a 1941 Boxoffice Magazine article that reported the BRANDT Theatre was to open in October 1941 with 750 seats and that land owner/developer William Brandt and promoter Nat Bernstein of Hammond, Indiana were the prime motivators.

Saw a few movies at the Brandt theater some in time the late ‘50s but it never seemed to be as popular as the Harvey Theater. My recollection is the theater closed some time in the '60’s,

Imagine what a thriving town Harvey was at one time with three movie houses within a block of each other. What a shame this town is today.
