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.

Looks like a dump! I know the Kameo was a Brandt Theatre. I would to see a photo from it’s heyday.

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.
