Brighton Theatre-1927

This was a silent screen movie house that existed in 1917 and possibly earlier and somewhat later. It must have been gone by 1928 because that’s when another theater, first called the New Brighton Theatre and then the Brighton Theatre, opened nearby at 1739 Brighton Place.

My grandfather, Harry Fleishman, owned and operated the Brighton Theater. It indeed was in operation until he built the larger “New Brighton” Theater (as it was called then). My mother (who grew up working at the New Brighton) tells me that the first Brighton was not on Brighton Place, but on Brighton Road, as the above post states. Brighton Road at that time was also known as “The Boulevard”.
