A permit to convert the ground floor of the building at 509-513 S. Broadway into a movie and vaudeville theater was granted to the Broadway Theatre Company on October 16, 1913. According to Robert Kirk Headley’s Motion Picture Exhibition in Baltimore: An Illustrated History and Directory of Theaters, 1895-2004, the architect for the conversion was Alfred Lowther Forrest.
