Linkrot repair: The Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company ad illustrated with a photo of the front of the Harris DuBois Theatre, in Boxoffice of October 15, 1938, can now be found at this link.

There was another Elks Theater on Brady Street in Du Bois. I have a 1926 post card image. I will add it to CT when I can find more info on it.

Here is a fresh link to the photo of the Harris DuBois Theatre in Boxoffice, October 15, 1938.

A post by user Foxfan on this page at a DuBois community forum says that this house was called the Pershing Theatre for a while before being renamed the Playhouse. The post also has some information about other theaters that have operated in DuBois.

The October 30, 1937, issue of Boxoffice said that the new Harris DuBois Theatre had opened the previous Wednesday. The architect of the Harris DuBois Theatre was Victor A. Rigaumont. A photo of the marquee appears in an ad for the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company in Boxoffice of October 15, 1938.

I would like to note that the picture posted by Bryan in 2005, and ad posted by ken mc in 2007, are of the “Harris Theatre”. Du Bois had three theatres, the Avenue, the Harris and the Carlton.

According to Cinema Tours there was the Avenue Theatre in DuBois PA, but from the photo it looks to pre-date the DuBois Theatre.

Does anyone have other photos or information on this PA theatre?
