The “Theater Openings” column of The Film Daily for April 9, 1938, noted the opening of the Beacon, February 5:

“Superior — Beacon, 650 seats, Tower Ave. (2-5-38); Builder: Dauplaise; Architect: R. C. Buck; Cost: $100,000; House Manager: Roy McMinn.”
R. C. Buck, Inc., was a design-build firm. I have no idea why a different builder was involved in this project.
