Completed in the spring of 1907, the Brooks Apartment Building contained two commercial spaces on the ground floor. One of those became the Varsity Theater, which the Berkeley Landmarks Preservation Committee has referred to as “reportedly the first playhouse in the City devoted primarily to movies”.
With the coming of nearby purpose built movie theatres, this storefront nickelodeon closed its doors in late 1911. The building still stands, the former Varsity Theater now home to a delicatessen.
