Given the shortage of materials, I think there was a general moratorium on construction of non-essential buildings during the war.

Boxoffice magazine reported in May 1943 that Eastland Theaters had recently opened a new house, the Wilhall, in Wilmington, CA. The three theaters listed for Wilmington so far, Avalon, Capitola and Granada, all existed in the 1920s, so the Wilhall may have been shortlived due to the war or perhaps never got underway at all.
