Open at least ~1919-~1925? Can anyone verify the exact dates?

Originally called the Majestic Theater. The name was changed to American after it was purchased in 1919 by Foster McSwain.

Need an address or crossroads, more info and photos.

Uploaded the grand opening ads for American from November 11th, 1919 and the first ad for the Hamly from April 23rd, 1928. The Hamly’s listing stopped in 1929.

The American Theatre (according to the Sanborn Maps in photo section) was evidently located at 119 East Main.

According to a news article from 1919 (see photo section), the referenced Unique Electric Company was at 121 East Main, first door east of the American Theatre.
