Moderne Theatre

On June 30, 1934, new operator relaunched the nearly 25 year old Princess Theatre as the Huston Theatre with new sound and projection (at left).

Under new operator T.A. Spurgin, the name was changed June 18, 1937 to the Moderne Theatre in a name contest in which actor Wallace Beery picked from the entries (middle ad).

Spurgin closed the Moderne on January 3, 1969. Rex Eckard reopened the venue as the Stanberry Theatre operating it from 1970 to closing on December 8, 1974 with Mr. Majestyk (at right).
