It’s a hassle to write in the link HTML for everything when it can be copy-pasted just the same.

Try clicking this again. I have no idea why this isn’t working for you, but it’s an April 1918 issue, page 734

Incredibly, in 1917 the Studebaker was closed only 5 weeks for renovations. http://archive.org/stream/exhibitorstra00newy#page/710/mode/1up

During planning and construction, the Senate was originally to be called the Panacea. Weird name!

The architects for this theater are sometimes given as Stanley

The Regent must have opened in 1913. I have just posted a “Under Construction” notice from January 18, 1913 “The Construction News” and the earliest ad I have seen in the Tribune is from December 7, 1913.
