This one-time Interboro/Randforce theatre stands on 4th Avenue and 54th Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The Coliseum Theatre opened in February 1922. Ornate with a balcony, the theatre ran double features for many years. When the neighborhood became more Latino, the theatre changed its policy by running Spanish language films. It was then taken over by a new owner in the 1980’s who ran first-run fare there.
He quaded the building in 1986 and ran it as such until 1990, when he closed it.
The theatre was later bought by the Alahambra Church and has been restored.
