The Commodore Theatre, at the northeast corner of Broadway and Rodney Street in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg section, was a local landmark. It was opened in 1922 and was equipped with a Kimball organ.
The Commodore Theatre was twinned in the 1970’s and was renamed Commodore Cinemas. It was the home of the Williamsburg Brooklyn Film Festival from 1998-2002. It was closed in July of 2002 due to it being purchased by a Jewish organisation who proposed to build a school and cultural center on the site. The building was torn down in January and February 2007 and the site remains an empty plot in 2016.
