The second in our summer series of outdoor movie theatres (airdromes).
The New York Clipper, July 11, 1914:
“In the rear of the park there has just been erected one of the largest and finest open air moving picture theatres in the country. The theatre seats over two thousand people and only first run pictures are shown. While admission to the park is free, there is a charge of ten cents to enter the picture theatre.”
The Brooklyn Eagle, June 9, 1915:
“The Seaside Garden seats 2,000 people and has a full orchestra. Two motion picture machines are employed so that there is no delay while waiting for the pictures to be shown.”
The Brooklyn Eagle, June 1, 1919:
“Feltman’s Coney Island motion picture airdrome, which is built on the beach, will open the 1919 season next Saturday night with the newest Mary Pickford production, ‘Daddy Long Legs’ for the entire week. The airdrome which seats 2,000, will be directed this season by William Brandt, president of the motion Picture Exhibitors League Brooklyn, who operates several other theaters in Brooklyn.”
He is available for theatre talks and walks in 2013.
