The Stanley Theater was demolished when US Route 52 was rebuilt. Sciotoville is still known by that name although it was incorporated into Portsmouth in 1921. If you search for Sciotoville in Google Maps or Mapquest, you will be directed to within a block or so of this site.

The Aug 6, 1937 issue of “The Film Daily” (pg 9), has a small article about Mrs. Fon Sexton who operates the Lyric in Ashland and the Grand in Ironton, buying the Stanly as a wedding present for her daughter.

The caption of a photo of the Stanley Theatre from the Portsmouth Library says that it was located at 5716 Gallia Street in the Sciotoville section, and was listed in city directories from 1922 to 1954.

This link might or might not work. The photo is at Pinterest, a rather boneheaded web site.

The Pinterest photo, which is the same as the one uploaded here, is from 1924.
