Princess Theatre

Located on N. Church Street at Public Square. This first Princess Theatre in the town was opened in 1919 on the east side of the square. It was equipped with a Reproduco organ (possibly a photoplayer). It was closed in 1936 to be replaced by a new Princess Theatre located on W. College Street which opened December 10, 1936 (which has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

The exact address of the first Princess Theatre was 118 N. Church Street. It operated from 1915 until 1923, when Crescent Amusement renovated the Sam Davis Opera House (originally Fox’s Opera House) at 132 W. College Street and moved the Princess name there. I don’t know if the original Princess was closed at that time or was kept open for a while under a different name.
