The Monroe Theatre was operating prior to 1926. This neighborhood house was down the block from the Loew's Gates Theatre and the RKO Bushwick Theatre, and has since been demolished. It was always a late run double feature house. In its fading days it played Spanish films, then kung-fu before going porno.
