This Park Slope theater was a sub-run neighborhood house. What makes it noteworthy is that the author Pete Hamill mentions it in his autobiography, A Drinking Life, and fictionalizes it in his novel ‘Snow in August’.
The Globe Theatre was opened by 1913. It was run into the ground before it closed in September 1957 with Jane Wyman in “Bad Men of Missouri” & Kenneth Tobey in “It Came From Beneath the Sea”. For a while it served as a warehouse. Then it was gutted and was supposed to become a medical center. This never happened, and seemed to be used as a residence for several years before it was finally demolished in December 2007.
