The Peerless Theatre was opened prior to 1914 when it was listed in the American Motion Picture Directory. By 1926 it was listed with 205 seats. In 1936 it was renamed Cuba Theatre after being taken over by Martina Circuit, and the seating capacity had increased to 300. The Martina Circuit still operated it in 1955 when it had 315 seats.

I notice the above ad says “Opera House” in the bottom corner. Could the Peerless / Cuba Theatre have been the same as the Palmer Opera House in Cuba on West Main Street which is currently undergoing renovation?

Nope. Further research shows that the current Palmer Opera House was not the Peerless Theatre. The Peerless was opened by Wesley Gross on August 21, 1914 on Main Street, next to his meat business.
