The Princess Theatre was in operation by 1920, and was still open at least as late as 1942. It was operated during those years by A. F. Kehr, who had entered the theatre business at Ogallala in 1912 and opened the Prairie Theatre in 1936. The Princess Theatre operated until 1954.

A vintage postcard of Spruce Street which looks to be from the early 1940s occasionally shows up on auction web sites (this link will probably go away soon.) The Princess Theatre is at the right. Comparing the postcard with modern street view, I think the Princess must have been on the east side of Spruce just south of First Street (Nebraska Highway 61.) It would have been across the street from the current locations of Verizon Wireless and H&R Block, so its most likely address would have been 17 N. Spruce Street.
