H. M. Newsome completed the Trianon Theatre on Second Avenue North in 1913 according to two books of that era and then purchased the Bonita. Mudd & Colley Amusement Company took on the theater and it went out of business in 1926 when the Ritz was used to supplant the Trianon. It had one more chance and reopened under new ownership likely as a sublease agreement. The Trianon was remodeled only to close again in 1932 probably completing a 20-year lease with the building repurposed for new retail use.

The building that housed the Trianon Theatre is still standing at 1916 2nd Avenue North. It appears to have been occupied when the Google camera car went by in June, 2008, but looked vacant when this photo, uploaded to Flickr on December 30, 2009, was taken.

Again a case of looking for clues for me as to which studio this theater was associated; as most were in the Golden Era. The Trianon appears at the time of the 1928 photo to have been associated with 20th Century Fox. Notice the FOX NEWS ad on the right hand corner of the marquee area.

This original Trianon Theater must have opened around late-1910.
