This was a neighborhood theatre from approximately 1913 to 1964. It then took on a succession of names and may have endured periods of closure.
It became the Athenian Theatre soon after its initial closure. Sometime after 1970, it became the Wellington Theatre, and then, according to various local business directories, the Sri Lakshmi, and then the the Gerrard Cinema or Gerrard Theatre, depending on the local source. It showed Tamil movies, consistent with the current ethnic character of the neighborhood.
In July 2011, it came under new owners and was renamed Projection Booth. Programs consisted of art, schlock, foreign and independent movies. It was closed at the end of 2014. It reopened on April 1, 2019 as the Grand Gerrard Theatre, presenting independent films and live performances.
