Originally opened in the early-1900’s as the Cameraphone Theatre, it was renamed Novelty Theatre around 1907 and was sold to new operators in May 1909. The Novelty Theatre operated through to 1950 with that name. It was later known as the Yale Theatre, and finally Corral Theatre. Apparently this movie house specialized in cowboy shoot-em ups.

Perhaps the address got transposed as the street number left of the Corral looks as if it reads 406.

Chuck, The theater on the south side of Douglas Avenue in the image was the Marple Theater and later known as the Vogue Art Theater. Odd number buildings on are the south part of Douglas with the even numbers being on the north side.
