DavidZornig commented about Missouri Theatre on Sep 29, 2015 at 9:03 pm

I’m wondering if the named was changed to the Plaza Theatre when Commonwealth Amusements took it over. I have an early `50’s photo identified as Carrollton Missouri with a Plaza Theatre visible, and the street looks the same. But I can find no record of a Plaza Theatre in that town. An image search brings up nothing.

DavidZornig commented about Avon 9th Street Theatre on Sep 16, 2015 at 11:15 pm

The photo I posted does not look like the same building in the other 3 photos. But the current street view of 9th Street buildings is mostly the same as the 1940 photo. It’s probable the other Avon photos are of a different theatre.
