BURKE THEATRE, BRONX, NY

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located on White Plains Road and Burke Avenue, the Burke Theatre was opened prior to 1928. In the 1943 edition of Film Daily Yearbook it was listed as (Closed), and was possibly re-opened briefly as the New World Theatre.

By 1950 it had been renamed Burke Theatre again. In the late-1950’s the Burke Theatre had a bit of a revival, showing movies for 25 cents on Saturday afternoons. Unfortunately the 25 cent movies didn’t last, and the Burke Theatre later closed and became an electronic parts store.

Was the cinema ever renovated and re-named New World circa 1943-44, with a policy of late-run double bills? An opening-day ad published on January 28th, 1944 has been uploaded to the Photos Section. Unless there was another theatre in that same block, this must be the Burke.
