I wonder if this theater could have been called the Grand at one time? The July 14, 1945, issue of Boxoffice has an item saying “Lloyd Royal of Meridian is expected to open the new Grand in Waynesboro, Miss., July 12.”

The Royal was located in the 700 block of Wayne Street, where the Fire Department is now. The old Princess Theater, which my grandfather owned, was located on Station Street near the old First State Bank. Station Street was referred to as Front Street by the locals, but it never officially carried the name. That’s why it does’t appear on Google Earth.
