This is the oldest known photo of the Princess. Later photos show more display cases, later a canopy, later a marquee, etc.

The Orpheum was purchased by M A Lightman in 1940 and was renamed the Malco (M A Lightman CO). It was renamed the Orpheum in 1976 after being taken over by Memphis Development Foundation.

vastor commented about Studio Theater on Aug 11, 2012 at 9:57 am

Recently have discovered that the Newman Theatre, which pre-dates the Normal name, was at the same address. Anyone have any insight whether it was the same building? It now houses a concert venue attached to Newby’s, the bar next door. The most recent photo posted here shows that it’s pretty messy looking these days. It also had its share of name changes: Normal, Studio, Highland Cinema, The Movie House and finally Newby’s.
