Brandt's Victory Theatre

The theatre first opened in 1910 with vaudeville and burlesque as Miner’s-in-the-Bronx, under the same ownership as the famous Miner’s on the Bowery in Manhattan. In 1915, Miner’s sold the theatre to Loew’s Inc. who re-named it the Victory Theatre in anticipation of a quick and happy ending to the war that was then raging in Europe and threatened to involve the USA.

Always one of the lesser of the Loew’s theatres in the Bronx. It was taken over by Brandt’s Theatres on November 5, 1954 and was renamed Brandt’s Victory Theatre, closing in the late-1950’s. Since demolished, a parade of modern shops now occupy this side of 3rd Avenue at E. 156th Street

Slight correction to the closing date: I recall attending this theater through 1959.

Are you sure it was demolished, I remember going into a store (Liquor)at the address with some friends which was the lobby. There was a larger building in the back behind the storefronts that ran the lenght of 4 storefronts. My friends said that was the auditorium of the Victory (Who knows?) It was not accessible but was a story high from the store fronts. You would enter through the liquor store walk to back and turn left to enter auditorium.
