Listed as a Negro theatre in editions of Film Daily Yearbook; 1933 and 1940-1955, it was known as Bailey Royal Theatre, or Bailey’s Royal Theatre in the early 1940’s with a seating capacity given as 500.

The 1950 edition of F.D.Y. gives an increased seating capacity of 700 for the Royal Theatre. Also the address seems to have variated between 232 or 238 Auburn Avenue NE, Atlanta.
