I saw the collection in the Brooklyn Public Library. I think the Park Palace Theater that those ads are for is the other Park Palace aka Glory Theater which is here. This Park Palace theater was operating as far back as 1915 so the 1921 opening program wouldn’t be for this theater.

I wonder if a c/o meant the same thing back then as it does today.

The Brooklyn Public Library collectionsuggests the Park Palace was still open in December 1924.

It shows the Park Palace program for 1924-12-01 was D.W. Griffith presents “America” with Carol Dempster; “The Wanderer of the Wasteland” with Jack Holt; “A Dangerous Crowd” with Fred Thomson; “In the Palace of the King” with Blanche Sweet; “Second Youth” with Alfred Lunt; and more.

I’m guessing that its opening program was on 1921 March 14-20 Showing: “My Official Wife” with Irene Rich; “The Duchess of Buffalo” with Constance Talmadge; “Savages of the Sea” with Frank Merrill; “Man of Iron” with Lionel Barrymore; “Carnival Girl” with
Marion Nixon; “Popular Sin” with Florence Vidor; and more.

I wonder what the “and more” in the programs meant??

Shalom, ciao, and excelsior

In September of 1924 a c/o was issued for a new building at this location. Purpose of building was a store and mattress manufacturing. So this theater was gone by 1924, possibly earlier than that.
