The Princess was stated around 1911-1913, when a man named Walter Caddell moved from Detroit Michigan. He came here with his company, Lancaster & Small Comedy Company, And he liked Wauseon so much, he moved here and organized the Princess with a man named Harry Sinerick.
I have an update about The Chief Theatre, It opened in 1939 and soon after WWII was over, it closed.
I have been doing some more research And I found that a Mr. D.L. McLain was the manager when the Theatre was opened in 1952. Mr. McLain also had another Drive-In and thst was in Morenci, Michigan. It was called the Skyline Drive-In.
The Chief was located on N. Fulton St. and it showed primarily Westerns. The Princess closed in 1964 And the Chief somewhere 1954.

The first organist at The Toledo Paramount was Dwight Brown who had been the organist at the Palace in Dallas TX.
