Was this theatre the Riviera? I remember it as the Rivera but I may have pronunced it improperly.

I lived at 1143 St Johns Place and remember seeing shows (I think a circus) as well as some movies at the RIvera circa 1949 or 1950.
I think it eventually became a storage place for moving vans and then an A & P.

The 1924 Brooklyn Eagle Almanac has it as a B.F. Keith’s Theater in a quarter page ad.
