A general conflagration in the early morning hours of December 4, 1919, destroyed several buildings in Fayette City, including the original Bell Theatre, as reported in that day’s edition of Monongahela’s The Daily Republican. A list of building permits issued for theaters in Pennsylvania in 1920 included a house at Fayette City for Joseph Bell and William Amaismaier. J. C. Brenton was the architect for the rebuilding project.

In 1910 my Grandfather worked there. In the 1910 census for Fayette City, Otto Bielawsky AKA Otto Belasco’s occupation was listed as Musician and his place of employment was Picture Show. The Theater is a whole lot older than what was stated.
