BROOKLYN - Another historic Brooklyn theater is set to be demolished.

Construction crews say the former Fox Savoy Theater, located at 115 Bedford Ave. in Crown Heights, is set to be demolished sometime in the next four months.

The glamorous movie theater was built in 1926 for William Fox, of 20th Century Fox.

It closed in the 1960s, but was bought by the Charity Neighborhood Baptist Church. In 2012, the church was cash-strapped and forced to sell the building for $575,000.

A developer is planning to bring luxury condominiums to the lot, according to Brownstoner.
