This house didn’t make it into Cezar Del Valle’s Brooklyn Theatre Index, but it did get mentioned in the December 6, 1913, issue of The Moving Picture World. The Leonard Theatre was to host the second meeting of the recently-formed Williamsburg branch of the New York City Exhibitor’s League.

The first meeting, which had been held at the Progress Theatre, was attended by representatives of the Leonard Theatre and of the Broadway Lyceum, Graham Palace, Tompkins Amusement Company, Bushwick Casino, and the Progress, Metropolitan, Lewis, Williamsburg, Owl, Sutter, Bushwick, Old Postoffice, Greenpoint, and Kensington Theatres.
