The Bedford Theatre was built in 1913, and leased to William Fox. It was operated by Frank Keeney from 1924-1926. Loew’s Inc. took over in 1926, and it operated as a premier movie palace in Brooklyn, until its closure on May 1, 1952. It was converted into a church.
The old Bedford Theatre still operates as a house of worship today, as the Washington Temple. The theater’s six box seats are still intact, as is the projection booth. Among the other original touches are the many sculptures which remain in the balcony, and the domed ceiling.
Perhaps of greatest interest are the original balcony seats and the carpeting that read Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Loew’s, which even to this day, remain intact.
