A brief biography of Edward N. Brown says that he opened the Fulton Theatre. Earlier, he had been one of the original partners in the Alcazar Theatre, and later, in 1916, he opened the Stocking Avenue Theatre.

It says he operated the Fulton Theatre for four years before selling it, and devoted his attentions to operating the Stocking Avenue Theatre, so the earliest the Fulton Theatre would have opened was probably 1912, but it was certainly in operation before 1916.

CinemaTour gives the Fulton Theatre the AKA Fulton Vaudette. Vaudette was a popular name for theaters in Grand Rapids during the 1910s, and several houses are listed as Vaudettes in city directories of the period.
