Hello-

as a devotee of movie theater history i find it fascinating that i can find no reference that this theater ever existed other than its mention on this page.

Found this on a google search bigjoe59:

Pelham Parkway Times

No photo of it though, just listed.

bigjoe59, to add to your fascination, there was a Bronx Theatre you may not have heard of, it’s not listed on CT. That was in 1910. It was located at the intersection of Wendover and Park Avenues. Today Wendover is Claremont Parkway.

A mention in the July 23, 1910 issue of the Film Index (gardens on the right) talks about Mr. Jacobs, who operated the Bronx Theatre, having problems with 2 or 3 open air venues operating in his vicinity and opening his own outdoor enterprise to compete.

So there you have it. More undiscovered moving picture venues, some nameless at the moment. By the way, Jacobs’ operation was only two blocks from Third Avenue, so that may be a clue to about where in the Bronx on Third Avenue the Aerodome was located.
