Thought some might find this article interesting, about the nearby Paris Opera House. Feel free to delete if desired.

Guess the difference his customers noted in January of 1913 didn’t last the year. Click full screen to see the Cupid’s owner’s quote. (I regret finding that link, cause now we’ll have to cross reference all those theatre’s with CT to insure they have pages.)

DavidZornig commented about Melbourne Outdoor Theatre on Mar 20, 2017 at 4:34 pm

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.
