The scan is a bit fuzzy, but the item in Boxoffice of March 29, 1941, appears to say that the Brisbane Theatre would be opening about mid-April. The first operator was Ralph Dostal. In 1948 he sold the house to H.L. Boyd. It later changed hands again a couple of times. The last owner was Robert Rogers. Boxoffice of December 7, 1957, reported that Rogers had closed the Brisbane permanently as of November 15.

Where is the photo of the Brisbane from the 40s?

It turns out that the Brisbane still stands. It was gutted and turned into apartments. In an Arcadia Publishing book titled Brisbane, there is a photo showing the theatre being converted. To this day, you can see that the proportions of the building are still the same, and even though there is a little atrium in the entrance, it is accessed by a passage the exact size of the exterior ticket lobby.
