The Mardi Gras Theatre is located at the corner of Nostrand Avenue and Clarkson Avenue.
It opened in 1908 and for such an early movie theatre, is quite an elaborate building on it’s facade. There is a half-timber gable front and decorative mouldings (today partially covered by signage and painted a darker shade of blue).
It is listed in the American Motion Picture Directory 1914-1915, but apparently closed around 1915 (some say 1919). Judging by the size of the building, the seating capacity would have been around 350-400. It was converted into a garage in January 1920.
For many years the front entrance was in use as a deli and grocery store, whilst the main auditorium is used for storage by a local plumbing company. The building was demolished in January 2015.
