The February 7, 1903, issue of The News Journal of Wilmington said that construction would soon begin on William Dockstader’s new theater at 828-839 Market Street.

The plans for the project had been drawn by the noted Philadelphia architect George L. Lovatt. Lovatt is best known for the many Roman Catholic churches he designed, mostly in Pennsylvania.

George Miller’s A Delaware Album says that the Garrick Theatre was leased to Warner Brothers from 1921 until closing in 1930.
