The Manhattan Photoplay Theatre was opened by 1914 and was located at W. 109th Street and Manhattan Avenue. It also had an open-air roof theatre. It became one of the many late-run movie houses that once co-existed on New York’s Upper West Side, in this case wedged between the districts of Morningside Heights and Harlem.
The Manhattan Theatre went over to Spanish language movies in 1944 and operated into the mid-1950’s. By 1959 it was operating as the Brook Avenue Theatre, still screening Spanish language movies. The building today houses a church.
