Opened in January 1937, the Elm Theater was a small theater that was situated on Avenue M and Elm Street, for which it was named. In the 1960’s, it was showing foreign films, but by the 1970’s it was showing more adult themed fare. Nothing seemed to work in the small neighborhood house with a small balcony, and it was the first Century house to close in 1973. A bank branch is now housed in the shape of the gutted theater.
Another sidebar of this theater is that it stood blocks way from both Brooklyn’s former NBC studio, and the studio and lot of Vitagraph Pictures. Both are still standing with the latter now serving as a Yeshiva.
