DocSouth’s Going to the Show says that the Stevenson Theatre was probably built in 1927.

There are a few period references to the Stevenson Theaters Company, a small circuit headed by S.S. Stevenson, and headquartered in the Stevenson Building. DocSouth lists two other houses in Henderson operated by the chain: the Princess and the Liberty. The chain also had houses in Burlington, Greenville, Mebane, and Raleigh.

The Stevenson Building, seen in this modern photo, is part of the Henderson Central Business Historic District, #87001249 on the National Register of Historic Places.
