Situated in northeast Brooklyn near the Queens border, this early cinema stood at Liberty Avenue’s intersection with Sheridan Avenue. In October, 1932, as the Depression worsened, the owners tried a rescue operation by turning the Sheridan 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.
