Opened in 1901 as a legitimate theatre, the Court Theatre, was located in the Board of Trade Building. The theatre was designed by architect Edward Bates Franzheim, a Wheeling native. By the late-1930’s, the Court Theatre was converted into a movie house. It operated at least into the early-1950’s. Any additional information on the Court would be appreciated.

What a beautiful photo of the lobby! I wonder what its current condition is.

Error in the architect field: There should be no “s” in the architect’s first name. It’s Edward Bates Franzheim.
