This movie house was located on White Plains Road and Burke Avenue. In the late 50’s the Burke 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 later closed and became an electronic parts store.

On January 30th, 1944, this was being advertised in The New York Times under the name of New World, with the slogan “Theatre of Tomorrow.” Current was a sub-run combination of “A” features that had topped bills on the RKO neighborhood circuit, 20th-Fox’s Technicolor “Heaven Can Wait” and RKO Radio’s B&W “The Fallen Sparrow.” Performances were continuous from 1:00pm to 11:30pm, with a “late show” added on Saturday nights. Telephone number was OL2-6641.
