The Cameraphone was an early store front nickelodeon, which was operating in 1908 and 1909.

In 2006, the building was in an unused condition, but has since become an electrical appliance store.

Great pick up Ken.

The Brooklyn Theatre Index also references the Cameraphone – what a great name! – as operating here during only 1908-9. A Brooklyn Eagle article noted that the theater presented “pictures and reproduced songs of Eva Tanquay as its feature”. It must have been great!

Loooking at the current building, you would never think that anything cinematic was ever situated here.

This is yet another reason why this is such a great site.

Based on the street view which says it was taken in June 2011, it’s now a used appliance store. Ironically, right around when Ken uploaded his 2006 photo to the site!!
