Here is the new page for the Vernon Theater. They need to update about the 1952 fire.

I submitted a CT page for the Vernon Theater based on VernonTexasHistory’s above description. I have located 2 photo’s from 1944 & 1945, which I will add after the page is accepted by the CT Admins. I will post the link to that page here as well.

I found reference of a Gem Theatre that was opened on New Haven Avenue in 1914 by J.B. Johnston, and was sold in 1916 to former first Melbourne Mayor Charles John Frazier Campbell. It was still in existence in 1924, the date of a photo I saved from the Melbourne & Melhi Memories-Melbourne Florida Facebook page. I’m looking for confirmation that it ever showed films, before I add a page for it to CT. Please respond back here if anyone finds anything further.

Photo added courtesy of Angela Marie. It appears to have also been named the New Elite Theatre at some point, and operated until 1914.

The Gar Wah was open at least into 1988, as I saw both “Robocop” and “Action Jackson” there. The latter was released February 12, 1988, and it was not first run at the Gar Wah.

“Beau Geste” was released September 7, 1966. So likely first run and before `67.
