The Willits Theater Company, owners of the Willits Theater, was mentioned in the July 2, 1932, issue of The Film Daily. The company had been incorporated by A. G. Conquest, Viola Langer, and Anne Carville. The Willits is mentioned again in the January 18, 1935, issue of the magazine, which said that the house had been transferred to George Smith by A. G. Conquest and V. Langer.

In between these two items is one from July 23, 1934, that says that the Willits Theater Corporation had transferred the Majestic Theatre at Willits to George Smith. Majestic was the later name of the house that opened in 1913 as the Colonial. Taken together these items appear to indicate that the Colonial/Majestic and the Willits Theatre were two different houses, but it isn’t definitive proof. I’d still like to find a single item mentioning both houses.
