Henderson Ryan was the architect of the People’s Theatre. The house featured his patented incline ramps for balcony and mezzanine access.

This opened as Peoples' theatre on February 25th, 1917 and reopened as the Park on November 15th, 1932. Both grand opening ads in the photo section.

1949 photo added of the Montana Theater with an old Park Theatre advertisement on the wall. “East Side West Side” on the Montana marquee, was released 12/22/49. The Park Theatre had already burned down 3 months earlier almost to the day. 1949 photo courtesy of Dave Byrne.

The poor widow with three kids was awarded $3500 – the theater argued this was excessive. Who do you think the court found more sympathetic?
