The Patricia was most likely the proposed theater that was the subject of this brief item inThe Film Daily of October 30, 1937:

“Ram Plans Aiken House

“Aiken, S. C. — Working drawings have been started on a one-story motion picture theater building here for H. B. Ram. It will have brick walls and a carrara glass front.”

Herbert Ram also operated the State Theatre in Aiken.

But does anyone have an exact opening and/or closing date for Patricia? Also, who was the architect and in what style was she designed?
