The Mozart Theatre was closed in 1954 and demolished the following year to make way for a parking lot, according to Boxoffice of November 5, 1955. It was last operated by Jerry and Irving Reinhart, sons of Harry Reinhart, who had taken over the house in 1931.

Trade journals from as early as 1923 note A. H. Abrams as owner of the Mozart Theatre. The November 11, 1921, issue of Variety filed this item:

“A. H. Abrams, well-known Canton, Ohio, theatre owner, announces erection of his new motion picture theatre in Tuscarawas street E will be started soon after the first of the year. This house will offer motion pictures exclusively and will be modern in every respect.

“Abrams also announces that he expects to get his new legitimate theatre under way sometime during 1922. This house when completed will play Shubert vaudeville, the franchise already having been secured, according to Abrams.”

I’ve found nothing to confirm that Abrams built his legitimate (or vaudeville) theater, so the Mozart must have been the film house scheduled for construction on Tuscarawas Street.
