The April 10, 1937, issue of The Film Daily mentioned that H. R. Wagner was operating the Majestic and Little Theatres in Seymour, Indiana. He had just had Sirocco blowers installed in both houses.

Per Charlotte Sellers on the If you grew up in Jackson County, Indiana you remember… Facebook page.

“Princess Theater was at 123 South Chestnut Street from about 1922 to 1932, based on listings in city directories and phone books. It was operated as the Little Theater from about 1937 to 1944. A 1943 update to Sanborn FIMs reported "movies not in operation.” The theater was torn down to make way for the “new” bank and drive-thru."
