Situated near the Queens border in the northeast Brooklyn district of City Line. This early cinema stood at Liberty Avenue’s intersection with Sheridan Avenue. It was opened prior to 1917. By 1926 it was operated by the Meyer & Schneider circuit. In October, 1932, as the Depression worsened, the owners tried a rescue operation by turning the Sheridan Theatre into a showcase for German and Austrian imports, shown in their original versions with English subtitles. Even with bargain prices that topped out at 35 cents at peak times, the policy failed. The Sheridan Theatre returned to late-run mainstream movies until closing permanently in 1933. The building still stands, but converted to retail.
