Kameo Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened as the New Lyric Theatre during the 20s, this 550-seat theater was located on Third Avenue near 180th Street in the Tremont area of the Bronx. The Lyric was renamed the Kameo during the 30s.

Long ago closed as a movie house, the building today houses a church.

2 FILM OPERATORS SIT DOWN IN BOOTH; Audience Leaves as Strike Begins in Bronx Theatre-Management Sends Up Food, Coffee

NY Times August 21, 1937

Two motion-picture operators, on a sit-down strike, passed the night in the projection box of the Kameo Theatre, 180th Street and Third Avenue, last night in spite of the hot weather. Their action caused the theatre to close its doors after more than 300 patrons had been dismissed with passes.

The 1970 IMPA puts the Kameo in Brooklyn, but I think it’s a typo. This was under the Brandt theater listing. There’s a half page of Brandt theaters, but to narrow it down here is Brooklyn and the Bronx:

Bronx: Post Road Bainbridge, Laconia, Lido, Melba, Wakefield, Ascot, Earl, Kent, Luxor, Bronx Square, Park Plaza, Surrey

Brooklyn: Carlton, Deluxe, Earl, Regent, Sanders, Sutter, Kameo (sic), Astor Shore.
