David.
You should say why you’ve changed the opening date from “about 1920” to “26 Dec 1913”.
A gap of 7 years is quite big.
It’s always best to cover yourself in case your source is wrong.
Regards from Philip.

It opened on 26 December 1913, and was closed for alterations on 11 June 1915. The floor was then raked, and a stage and balcony were inserted. It reopened on 16 August 1915.
