This appears to have opened as the Elite Theatre in 1912 likely on a 20-year lease. Harry Wright bought the Elite in December of 1914 changing it to the Princess Theatre. It appears to have gotten a 20-year lease with different operators sometime operating as an African American theatre and other times as a segregated theatre operated by Fred C. Allen.
