According to its entry at Water Winter Wonderland, this theater was also known as the the Superba and the Gem (not to be confused with the later Gem Theater on Corunna Road.).

I’ve been unable to find directories for Flint from before 1915 or after 1922. In addition to those two editions, Google Books has 1918, 1919-1920, and 1921. This house is called the Elite in all of them, so the aka’s must date from before 1915 or after 1922.

However, the 1919-1920 and 1921 directories have a listing for a Gem Theatre at 1361 Stever Avenue. There are no theaters listed on that street in the other three directories.
