A permit for a “New Theatre” for Mr. B. Bear was issued in 1914. The location given is the north side of Broad Street between 2nd and 3rd. The architect of record was William C. West, but a drawing of the house exists labeled “New Theatre for Mr. M. F. Hofheimer, Richmond Va., Designed by Atlantic Terra Cotta Company, 1170 Broadway New York.” It is presumed that Bear obtained the drawing from Hofheimer after the latter abandoned the project, and had West design the rest of the building.
