This neighborhood theatre in East Flatbush first opened in 1934. More information about its history and current status of the site would be appreciated. An internet search lists a restaurant called OK Fish for the same address. It seems possible that it’s a conversion of the Waldorf Theatre or occupies part of the building.

This building still stands so the status should be “Closed” and Warren is correct, a restaurant is listed for this address.

I recall going past this theater in December 1956. It was closed but from the condition of it, not for long. It was not boarded up and all marquee glass was intact. Exterior was clean.

This local.live view offers a pretty good overhead look of the former Waldorf Theatre.
