This neighborhood theatre on Coney Island Avenue was once owned by the Island Theater Circuit, the owner of the Kent Theatre (still operating as a triplex) a few blocks away. The Leader Theatre was opened in 1927. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer 2 manual 10 ranks theatre organ. It was redecorated & remodeled in August 1944. It closed in 1960 and became Leader Lanes bowling alley and a billiard & pool room on the second floor.
Later it became a disco, before the entire building was gutted and subdivided into stores and office space. In 2006 a three story apartment block was built above the theatre.
