I stopped in today, one of the regulars told me it has been sold and they expect to close the deal in July at the latest. So unless the deal falls through it will be curtains by this summer.

The number is 718-339-1800 and the guy on the phone said it has been sold and will be closing, but no date has been announced yet.

Might be listed as CKH Theatre, as on this web page, which gives a number (I haven’t tried it to see if it works.)

They answered the phone this morning, and said they are open.

The marquee in the front that says Cinema, the sale sign used to be over it. Not sure if it is closed, will check it out next time I am near the place.

Yes, it looks like a truck brushed up against it and shredded it. I hope it will be repaired, but somehow doubt it.

Wow – new to site. I used to work at this theatre back in the day. There were times that I would sell the ticket; get the refreshments and run the films! I used to let my good friends in – lasted for a while until my parents found out it was a porn theater and wouldn’t let me work there anymore. Good memories.

The Jewel Theatre was in business for less than a half year before the mayor came after its operators as a numbers front and charged with other illegal gaming activities. That’s old school Brooklyn!

The theatre is still open…for now.

Whoever buys it had better have the floors scrubbed REALLY well.

I passed by yesterday (see photo). It looks like it’s still open, but it’s definitely for sale.

Thank-you for the update. Is the theater still open? I would like to visit a few more times.

I haven’t seen it but I hear there is a FOR SALE sign up on the building.

Any other porn theaters left in the city? I went there many times. Loved to cruise and be cruised.

I don’t believe this link has been published in any earlier comment. Boxoffice of January 7, 1939, had an article about architect Benjamin Schlanger’s innovative design for reverse-slope auditoriums. The second page of the article has a photo of the Jewell Theatre.

This is the first page of the article.

This is the secondpage of the article with the photo of the Jewell at bottom right.
