Opened in 1962 as part of the Essex Street apartment complex, this nearly 600 seat single screen played action, horror and kung fu. The bookings were usually first run and almost always had a second feature thrown in. The heyday of the Essex Theatre was the late-1970’s and early-1980’s, when Cannon was churning out Charles Bronson films like “Death Wish II”. They also played a lot of New Line and indie slasher flicks.
In 2019 the building is in use as the Center Light Medical Center.
