Unfavorite 1 person favorited this theater

The Belle Paree Theatre is listed in the 1914-1915 edition of the American Motion Picture Directory. Old buildings in retail use still exist at this address on the corner of Bergen Avenue, so the theatre could have been a store front conversion.

I repositioned the street view to the SW corner of Bergen Avenue and E 149th Street. The storefront nearest the corner with the blue signage is 416 E. 149th. The building certainly appears to date from the period when the cinema was in operation, and located just a block away from “the hub,” at the busy intersection of E 149th with Melrose and Third Avenues. “The hub” was a hugely prosperous shopping district that anchored the South Bronx and drew shoppers from around the borough. The original Alexanders department store was located there, as I’m sure where a number of first run cinemas and vaudeville houses.
