"Newly refurbished", the former Loew's Boro Park opened in October 1966 as the Yiddish Boro Park Theatre.
The New York Times, October 3, 1966, reported an “almost full house" for a revue produced by Ben Bonus who offered “the same formula that has worked for him on Second Avenue for several seasons: variety plus a movie, usually in Yiddish.”
“The audience was apparently from the area. Many seemed to come from the neighborhood's Orthodox community; there were somewhat more skullcaps in evidence than one usually sees in Second Avenue houses.”
