The Tuxedo Theatre probably opened in May, 1929. It was first advertised in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on May 27th, 1929, described as “Coney Island’s Newest Theater,” located at the Ocean Parkway station of the Brighton Beach subway line. The ad also claimed “A first class moving picture theater showing the best Movietone and Vitaphone talking pictures. Policy, continuous from 1 to 11 PM. Programs change three times weekly.”
P.S. In the introduction, “blade sign” needs to be changed to “vertical sign.” The usage of “blade” is discouraged under CT’s new guidelines.

My grandmother lived on the same block, the first north of the Brighton Line Ocean Parkway station. Her building was torn down at the same time.

I remember seeing a Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis film there in the ‘50s, something with “circus” in the title. My mother and aunt, on the other side, knew Lewis as a child, but that is another story.

I wonder if this was the theater where my sister Cathy & I saw “State Fair” in 1962 when I was 18 or 19 ? I’ll never forget the audience laughing when Pat Boone burst into his first song ! frankie from Brooklyn
