No one has favorited this theater yet
As extensively documented in the Brooklyn Theatre Index, a large theatre existed at 84-88 Montrose Avenue, in Williamsburg, from – with a few breaks – 1870 through 1918. This establishment clearly reflected the tastes of the large German population that dominated this community during this time.
During most of its existence, this establishment hosted legitimate theatre and vaudeville. However, as noted in a July 2, 1916 Brooklyn Eagle article, the Lyceum Theatre had, by that time, become a "photoplay" theatre. This qualifies it for inclusion in this web site.
The site of the Lyceum Theatre is now included within the bounds of Frances Hamburger Sternberg Park (formerly Lindsey Park), which was extended north from its initial location as part of a 1960’s era Unban Renewal project.
