Situated near Sumpter Street’s intersection with Fulton Street, the Globe Theatre was another of Brooklyn’s early neighborhood cinemas that fell victim to the joint arrival of sound movies and the Great Depression.

I found some information about the Globe. In April 1940, it became the Good Tidings Gospel Hall, where the congregation remained until 1983. Here’s a link to the website which has a couple of pictures from 1940 & the 1970s…

Today, it’s the home of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church & you can see a picture of it today on their Facebook page…

The Brooklyn Theatre Index specifies a slightly lower capacity of 564, notes that George Keister was the architect and that no one less than Thomas Lemb performed some alterations here in the early 1920’s. (Not bad for a little “nabe” theater.) ….. Apparently, when the Globe opened in 1914, it replaced another theater called the Empire that operated from 1912 through 1914 and was situated at 11-13 Sumpter. The Empire – despite its august name – must have been strictly a small nickelodeon type operation.
