Located in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. The Nassau Arcade had already been operating by 1914 when a new theatre building was built that year, designed by architect Albert C. Kunzi. It was operated by Herman Weingarten, who also operated the adjacent Airdrome. It probably only lasted a short while.

Thanks Ken for the post. I used to live around the corner on Morgan Ave. and would never have suspected that anything cinematic ever existed here.

My grandfather, who worked at the Taylor Foundary which once existed accross the street, might have remembered it, though I doubt it.

By the way, the Google picture opens to the wrong side of the street. The old theater would have been situated near what is now the Onyx Bar – I knew it as the Cozy Corner – in what is now a parking lot.
