Crest Theatre

The Crest opened in 1936 on Ogden Avenue near 167th Street in the Highbridge section of the Bronx. This Art Deco style movie house closed by the early 60s, and was later razed. It was replaced by a large apartment building.

This was the first movie theater I ever went to. 1950ish. I remember spending Saturdays there with my friends.

In 1948 this was the Trans-Lux Crest.

i remember it was in the early 70s i found this old theater the
crest.i was 17 and there was a hole in the wall so i squeezed though
to get a view from the so much art deco!back then they
used big steps or stadium type seating that passed 4 a balcony.i sat
there 4 awhile imagining myself watching a bogart film with people
all around me-some were on dates eating popcorn etc.the frame around
the screen was so dirty but there were remnents of an art deco design
too.must have been a grand place 4 a neiborhood theater.
