The Kittanning, Pennsylvania Simpson’s Leader-Times of December 20, 1975, said that the Vernon Theatre building in Barnesboro had been destroyed by a fire the previous day. Another source indicates that the house had closed in 1974.

Vernon Scott was the head of the Ideal Amusement Company, according to Boxoffice of October 2, 1937. The item said that the Vernon Theatre had opened “…at the turn of the year….” I guess that would mean either December 31, 1936, or January 1, 1937.

At the time of Scott’s death in March, 1942, the Ideal Amusement company operated a circuit of 14 theaters. Scott was succeeded as President of the chain by former general manager F.X. McClellan.
