This elegant theater once stood on Pineapple Street in the posh Brooklyn neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. It was one of the first theatres to be designed and decorated in an Art Deco style and opened on December 25, 1927, with the French movie “Tillers of the Soil”. It had a box on the left of the proscenium, which in the early days held musicians.
By 1950 it was operated by Liggett-Florin Booking Service. It was closed in 1965, and torn down decades ago to make way for a high-rise apartment development.
