I have just added the Allerton Theatre, its location is very close to what’s given here for the Barnes Theatre, but maps out a couple of blocks away from Barnes Ave.

I don’t have any record of a Barnes Theatre before 1930 nor after 1941 and unfortunately I don’t have any F.D.Y. for 1931 through 1940 to check and see if both the Allerton and the Barnes are listed.

The Allerton Theatre opened in 1927 and I have it listed with that name through to 1957 in F.D.Y. that I have.

On a Bronx message board that I came across, people were talking about an Allerton Theater that was located at 740 Allerton Ave in the Bronx. They claim it was operating into the 1970’s. I don’t know if that is the true name of the theater or if it has any relationship to the Barnes Theater. I just thought that I would mention it. If the Allerton isn’t the Barnes Theater, then we might have another theater to add.

The Mike Rivest Ultimate Theatre Guide has the Barnes Theatre operating from 1935 through 1940. Anyone know what happened after that?
