I don’t remember any of the decorations in the auditorium, only the usherette screaming at us children on the weekend shows.

The Garden theatre probably build an open air theatre behind it(Enternace may have been on New Utrecht Ave.)If so, it did not last long. By 1927, Loew’s 46th Street(Universal)theatre was built and the Garden soon became a second & third run house. It was in very bad condition when I was a child. As I mentioned, it was torn down by the mid 1950’s.

This Garden theatre was definately torn down in the 1950’s. (I live a few blocks from it as a child) It was built before 1919 as I have pre World War II .If you look at the description above, it had a roof that opened. It was never used after the theatre was air conditioned. The address was 4601 New Utrecht Avenue. A supremarket was built afterwards, and that was followed by a lumber store and yard which is there now.

The Garden theatre was the first or second theatre build next to the trains in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn. (West End and Garden theatres were built before the “el” structure was put up.)
