Sorry! I meant Michael Miller’s list of BRONX theatres! I don’t know if the now deceased historian ever compiled one for Brooklyn.

The Louis Theatre was “modernized” into the Jackson in 1935 by architect Ben Schlanger. According to historian Michael Miller’s list of Brooklyn theatres, the house first opened in 1919 as Coleman’s.

It’s funny those matrons were always overweight and the uniform two sizes too small :)
