The Central Theater was a small neighborhood movie house in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick. It opened on September 23, 1916, and was designed by Thomas Lamb. Located at 431 Central Avenue, between Woodbine and Madison Streets, about 5/8 of the way southeast from Woodbine to Madison. It operated until 1926. In 1927 it was renamed Luxor Theater and continued until 1936.
In 1936 it was re-named Eagle Theater and closed in the early-1950’s. It was apparently one of many small neighborhood movie houses that was done in by television in that time frame. The building became home to a church. In 2008, the building was gutted, removing the roof and most of the facade. The side-walls remained, and the remainder of the building was demolished in 2013.
