Designed by architect Max Hirsch.It was part of the Brandt Circuit, and was later operated by Fox, then the Century Circuit. Last operated by the E.C.Endicott Circuit who closed it in1951.

    It was converted into retail use and today there is no indication either outside or inside the building that it had ever been a movie theatre and can be seen here as the GEM Super Value store.

      It closed about the time you indicate and became an A&P Supermarket. If the photo is towards Woodruff Avenue where I lived until 1955, the Peller and Silverman Pharmacy was where the duane reade pharmacy is. There was a fruit/vegetable stand next to it. When there was no heat in our apartment during World War Two, my mother would bundle me up and take me to the Parkside Theatre.
