The RKO Bushwick Theatre is at the corner of Broadway and Howard. The Bushwick Theatre opened on September 11, 1911 and was operated by Percy Williams as a vaudeville theatre. It became part of the B.F. Keith's chain in 1912, operating until 1930. It became a movie theatre for the RKO-Keiths chain in 1930 and operated until closing in 1969.

Church use followed, for a period of time, then the building fell into disuse and decay for decades.

A high school opened within the shell of the former theater in March of 2004.
