Research suggests that there were two United theatres at this site, the first probably demolished to make way for the second. The 500-seat United Theatre may have started as a nickelodeon. Circa 1925-26, it was replaced by a much larger United Theatre with a reported 1,800 seats. In 1932, it was re-named the New United Theatre, with seating capacity reduced to 1,600.
The theatre closed around 1945, and was described as such in Film Daily Year Books until 1949, when it disappeared from the list of Brooklyn movie theatres. The New United Theatre apparently never re-opened, even under another name. Perhaps its nearest rival, the 586-seat Subway Theatre at 158 Myrtle Avenue, was all that the neighborhood could support. The New United Theatre has been demolished.
