| Street View

The Bonita Theatre opened in 1911 showing motion pictures. Charles Champe was the proprietor at the Bonita and at the Gay Theatre down the street. The Bonita didn’t last long. The 1913 Knoxville City Directory lists this address as the Emile Seilas Restaurant. In 1914 the Queen Theater would open two door down from this site.

According to the website listed below, the Bonita reopened as the Cable Theatre in 1913, though that contradicts my own research.
