Though admittedly lacking in detective skills, I can state with a very high degree of accuracy that this venue actually launched as the Grand Theatre on March 14, 1908 with motion pictures in downtown Woodland (see photos for the grand opening ad.) On May 16, 1908, under new operator William Hunt, the theater relaunched as the Elite Theatre still showing motion pictures.

In August of 1910, Hunt sold the theatre to Woodland movie pioneer Eugene Mathauer. However, William Hunt re-acquired the theatre in May of 1911 and his wife, Allie Hunt, ran the Elite closing it in 1915.
