This 2,100-seat theater, which originally presented both vaudeville and silent movies, was located on Halsey Street between Saratoga Avenue and Broadway in Brooklyn’s Bedford Stuyvesant section and is listed as operating from at least 1926.
It is most notable for being the place where the legendary Jackie Gleason won an amateur contest and got his first job, as an emcee, at the young age of 15, in 1931.
The theatre was closed around 1945.
