A one-story modern group of three stores now occupies the site.

The Sheldon was a poor cousin to the Sheepshead, but it boasted the cheapest seats around. 8 cents for a kid to enter. 10cent popcorn. Saturday Matinees with lots of cartoons, serials, western shorts and a couple of films. Kinda like close to 5 hours for the cheapest price in town in the early 50’s

According to Brian Merlis, et al, in “Brooklyn’s Gold Coast: the Sheepshead Bay Communities” the theater was known as the Shelton, was built in 1920, and possibly known at some period during the 20s as the Sommer.
