I understand that Joseph van Raalte was its president during those years; he was married to Dora (Kohner). Is there a relation between the name of the theater (Vandora) and Dora van Raalte?

Building permit issued in December 1909 which means theatre opened in 1910. Theatre was listed in the City Directory from 1910 to 1918. Architect listed in building permit was O. J. Boehmer.
