Styles: Art Deco
This former theater is located near the Avenue P station of the F Line. The exterior of the building that is still standing has an Art Deco look. The Claridge Theatre opened in September 1933 and ceased showing movies in 1963, when it became a catering hall. At one time it was known as the Claridge Catering Hall and then it became Le Chateau.
The latter closed in the last year or so, and the building stood vacant until recently when a demolition crew started tearing it down. (By the way, this is the third Brooklyn theater building that I have discovered being torn down in the past few weeks. The other two are the partially demolished Carlton Theater and the fully demolished Deluxe Theater.)
