R. L. Bailey’s Bailey Theatre at Bunkie, Louisiana, was mentioned in three issues of Motion Picture News, October through December, 1929. A history of Bloom’s Arcade in Tallulah, Louisiana, which also had a Bailey Theatre, says that Robert Lee Bailey Sr. operated a regional chain of movie theaters from his headquarters in Bunkie.

Quite a few of Mr. Bailey’s theaters, including the house at Bunkie, were altered over the years to plans by architect John M. Gabriel, noted on this partial list of his works. As near as I can determine, Gabriel’s office was in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
