The Liebenberg and Kaplan Papers collection at the University of Minnesota has photos and plans of the Garrick. I have just purchased copies of some of these photos for a project I am working on. As a child growing up in Duluth I attended movies at this theatre and remembered when it was torn down.

This web page about Duluth’s smaller movie theaters says that the house at 18-20 2nd Avenue West opened in 1913 as the Rex Theatre. The building was razed in 1956.
