The Mt. Morris Theatre was opened prior to 1911. By 1926 it was operated by the Meyer & Schneider circuit. It is listed in the Film Daily Yearbook, 1930. By 1940 it was screening Spanish movies and is listed as the Teatro Hispano, and was still open in 1956. From 1959 to 1961 it operated as the Teatro Santurce.
It is an imposing well built building located on the northeast corner of 5th Avenue and E. 116th Street.
Its appearance from the exterior was well maintained when I photographed it in 2003 in its current use as The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of The Apostolic Faith.
