The Kismet Theatre was located at DeKalb Avenue and Marcy Avenue in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district of Brooklyn. It opened on April 22, 1922 with Vera Gordon in “Your Best Friend” plus vaudeville on the stage. There were three bas-relief stone panels located on the facade above the entrance, which depicted scenes from William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Nights Dream”. Originally an independent, it was taken over by Fox Theatres, and later was part of the Interboro chain.
The Kismet Theatre closed in 1962 and became a church until around 2006. It lay unused and was demolished in 2009.
