That narrows it down alot. Sometime between 1951 and 1953 should be the closing year.

The Franklin Theatre is still listed as open in the 1950 Film Daily Yearbook with a seating capacity given as 450.

In 1942 there is a 495 seat motion picture theater at 440-442 Lenox Ave. In 1954 the building is listed as a Church. So, the Franklin theater closed somewhere between those two dates.
