The Filmland Theatre opened in 1925 and stood at the intersection of Nostrand Avenue and Church Avenue. By 1930 it had been re-named Granada Theatre. It had a huge marquee and was a single-level house, which was sub-run for years. By 1957 it was operated by Liggett-Florin Booking Service.
The Golden Theater chain took it over in the early-1970’s, and turned its declining fortune around as a dollar theatre. Later it ran second-run double features and some first run.
Finally it ran action and blaxploitation before closing. It was retrofitted as a Pioneer Supermarket, but it eventually closed as well.
