The Decatur Theater replaced an earlier theater on this site, the People’s Pleasure Palace (1908-1914), and was built and opened in 1914. It was a small theater in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick and stood at 1674 Broadway between Macdonough Street and Decatur Street. It had no balcony, and had seats on only one level. In 1924, the lobby was extended to the plans of architectural firm Shampan & Shampan. By 1950 it was operated by Liggett-Florin Booking Service. The Decatur Theater was closed in 1951.
Since 1994 it housed Henry Distributors hardware store. The interior was gutted for this use. The building was demolished in April 2015 to make way for housing.
