The Marathon Theater first opened in 1908 and is listed in the American Motion Picture Directory;1914-1915 edition at 188 Prospect Park Avenue in the Park Slope distict of Brooklyn. The Film Daily Yearbook editions of 1926 and 1927 still have the theatre listed at that address with a seating capcity of 600.
A Wurlitzer theater organ opus 1816 style "E" was installed in the Marathon Theater on 12/19/1927. However, this would have been a very short run for the organ as the Marathon Theatre was torn down in 1928 and the much larger Sanders Theatre was built on the site.
Today the address is 188 Prospect Park W. and the Sanders Theatre was in operation as the Pavilion Theatre (now subdivided into 9-screens) until closing in October 2016 to be converted into a 7-screen Nitehawk Cinema.
