A Blast from the Past (1904)

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Westchester Theatre is listed as operating in the 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Directory. In this edition the address is given as 2319 Winchester Avenue. But this could have been a typo, as to confuse matters further, the 1926 edition of Film Daily Yearbook it gives the address of the Westchester Theatre (300 seats) at 2319 Webster Avenue.

However in the 1927 edition of F.D.Y. the Westchester Theatre (300 seats) is located at 2319 Westchester Avenue. In the 1930 edition of Film Daily Yearbook, the Westchester Theatre is still located at 2319 Westchester Avenue, Bronx. Seating is listed as 275 and it is (Closed).

The theatre was probably never equipped for sound movies.

Here is a photo of a Westchester Theater that was located in the Bronx. I’m not sure if its a photo of the Westchester Theater listed on this page.

Yes, Lost, that’s the correct theatre. The building is still there, I recognize that arch thing. I’ve seen it from the elevated #6 train and I thought it had been a theatre at one time. It’s an odd design, the way that arch is, I thought that the building had an upper floor that had been demolished and they only retained the arch, but apparently I was wrong. It is presently being used for retail.

Thanks Dave. This address does still exist. I searched the addresses posted on the RKO Royal Theater page and the Department of Buildings returned invalid addresses for 2319 Webster Avenue and 2319 Winchester Avenue. A search of 2319 Westchester Avenue shows a store building. The status can be changed to closed and the function to retail.
