This elegant theatre in the area now known as Bedford-Stuyvesant first opened as the Fulton in September, 1908, presenting stage plays and vaudeville. In 1915, Marcus Loew purchased it for his burgeoning circuit, dropped plays and added movies to the programs. Loew’s Fulton Theatre was so successful that by 1927, the company had taken over two more theatres in the neighborhood, the Brevoort and the Bedford.
With the arrival of the Depression, that proved at least one too many, so the Fulton Theatre, being the oldest and most outmoded, was closed in 1930.
