A comment and question asked on flickr: “The Bryant use to be a single screen. Were three additional screens built on or was the original auditorium spilt up?” With 688 seats I wondered the same thing.

I know that the Lions Lincoln Theater in Massillon, OH is listed in Cinema Treasures. Was this the theater Mr. Skirball built?

It may have been a different theater in Massillon that Mr. Skirball built. The Lions Lincoln was built by another architect in the mid-1910’s, and was also a former Warner Bros. house. Maybe the Skirball theater was built, closed, and demolished. The Lions Lincoln, which is still open, is the only Massillon theater listed here.

Looking at Newspaper ads as far into the seventies it was selling itself as an AIR CONDITIONED theatre.Thought that was odd.
