Opened in 1914, the architect of the Flatbush Theatre was Robert T. Rasmussen. Vaudeville, plays, and movies were featured. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer 2 manual 8 ranks, style V organ. I saw “Kiss Me Kate” with the original cast during a summer in the late-1940’s. (Like the Brighton Theatre, Broadway shows appeared there during the summer months).
After the theatre closed in 1952, the marquee was removed, and it became a rug and carpet store at the stage end of the building.
