The theatre first opened in 1910 with vaudeville and burlesque as Miner’s-in-the-Bronx, under the same ownership as the famous Miner’s on the Bowery in Manhattan. In 1915, Miner’s sold the theatre to Loew’s, which re-named it the Victory in anticipation of a quick and happy ending to the war that was then raging in Europe and threatened to involve the USA.

Always one of the lesser of the Loew’s theatres in the Bronx, the Victory Theatre closed in the late-1950’s and was eventually demolished.

Slight correction to the closing date: I recall attending this theater through 1959.
