This was a small neighborhood theater on the north side of Myrtle Avenue in Brooklyn. The Peerless Theater was opened in 1914. Located under the elevated rail line which ran from Metropolitan Avenue in Queens County to Sand Street Station in downtown Brooklyn, which was an elevated rail hub where one could transfer to trolleys and change for another El train which ran over the Brooklyn Bridge to New York. Some trains ran through over the Bridge on this line.
A surface trolley route, the Myrtle-Court line, ran by the door on the surface. It was riding these lines that I became familiar with this theater in the late-1940’s. At that time it was quite old and worn. It was far down on the distribution scheme and was part of the Interboro chain. The Peerless Theatre was closed in 1965.
