The Avon 9th Street Theatre was a small neighborhood movie house which stood on 9th Street between 4th and 5th Avenues in Park Slope. It first opened in 1914, and was designed by architects Harde, Short & J. MacManus. It ran double features for some time until it went XXX, which it served up for years.
McDonald’s bought the site, closed the decaying theater in 1975, razed it and build a fast food restaurant there.
The theater stood a block away from the RKO Prospect Theatre. If you go into 5th Avenue Locksmith next door, you will see a photo of the theater’s facade. Its marquee announces a Jerry Lewis movie.
