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?

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.
