This one-story theatre stood on Coney Island Avenue (between Avenue U and Avenue T, standing less than one block from the Mayfair Theatre). The Homecrest Theatre was opened in 1915 and operated until 1923. In 1924, it reopened as the Sunshine Theatre, and had 375 seats. In 1932 it was renamed Dewey Theatre, and the seating capacity was reduced to 348. By 1941 it was operated by the Island Theater Circuit. It closed in 1954.
Most recently it was a plumbing supply business, but I believe the theatre building still stands, although its facade has been covered to advertise the former plumbing supply business. By 2018 it was in use as a pharmacy.
