The Dyker Theater was opened on November 26, 1926. It was equipped with a Marr & Colton 2 manual organ. In 1928, it was leased to RKO, who operated the theatre for the remainder of its cinematic life. Closed in 1977, the RKO Dyker Theater was converted into retail space.
Modell’s is on the balcony level. Take the escaltor up and you will be amazed to see the repainted auditorium ceiling, upper proscenium and upper side walls have been intergrated into the store.
The vertical sign stills butts the facade, although it now says Radio Shack, its other occupant.
