I remember the Gayety theater. My mother was a burlesque dancer there. I was young and would sit in the changing area. Those women were beautiful & funny. I watched them hand stitch beads onto their costumes. After a while it became the Paris and my mother stopped taking me with her to work. It wasn’t long before she quit the Paris and took a job elsewhere.

It must have been a theater twice then, 1944 and later. Because it was Jefferson Super Mart in 1963, before it became the Paris Theater sometime before 1969. I added a 1963 photo before it was the Paris.

This theater must be the one mentioned in the November 4, 1944, issue of Boxoffice. The item said that the new theater owned by Louis Long and Walter Gregg was nearing completion at Third and Washington in Phoenix. The house was in a building converted from a garage. Plans for the conversion were drawn by the Phoenix architectural firm of Lescher & Mahoney.
