The Priscilla Theater Company of Toledo filed articles of incorporation on November 4, 1916, according to the statistical reports of Ohio’s Secretary of State published in 1917. Capital stock was $5,000. Another report from the same office gave the names of the corporation’s members as I. F. Anderson, Frank R. Fisher, B. Bryant Wood, Langdon W. Kumler, and W. B. Grammer.

The Priscilla Theatre was in operation by 1917. In 1919, the operators were J. F. Kumler and W. H. McClellan. J. F. Kumler was John Kumler, who built the Pantheon Theatre in 1919. By 1928 the Priscilla Theatre had been renamed Pastime Theatre, and another Priscilla Theatre was operating at a different address on N. Summit Street.

Since submitting this theater I’ve discovered more about it. It turns out that the house at 330 N. Summit Street was the first Priscilla Theatre, and the one that operated in the later 1920s and 1930s was at a different location.

The first Priscilla had been renamed the Pastime Theatre by 1928, and the name Priscilla had been moved to a theater at 2728 N. Summit Street. There had also been an earlier Pastime Theatre in Toledo, operating at 1418 Cherry Street as early as 1920.
