The Theatre Historical Society says that the Kingsbridge Theatre opened on January 26, 1922. The house had a 2 manual, 6 rank Wurlitzer organ, opus 472.

I wonder if it was an ornate interior.

As a kid I worked there after it was converted to an A&P food market. Never knew it was a theater.

The April 28, 1921, issue of Engineering News-Record said that architect and engineer I. Margon was preparing plans for a theater and store building, 138x160 feet, on Kingsbridge Road at Jerome Avenue.

A few years after this theater was built, architect Irving Margon, then in partnership with Adolph Holder, would design, in association with Emery Roth, one of New York City’s iconic apartment buildings, the twin-towered Eldorado Apartments at 300 Central Park West.

Two photographs of the Kingsbridge Theatre that I took in June 2005 from the Elevated platform of the Metro at Kingsbridge Road Station:
