Small Independent theatre, it was run by my grandfather, Julius Charnow in the 1950’s and was part of Brandt Theatres chain. Trying to discover whatever I can.

I moved into the area nearly 40 years ago and by then the site was already a small supermarket, competing with a Bohacks on the other side of the Newkirk Plaza subway tracks. The theatre could have been an early victim of the television era. Am curious if given the name, it presented more art house fare. Nearest competition was the Leader on Coney Island Av. which was very much a mainstream house.
