Open ~1935-~1955? Can anyone verify the exact dates?

Can always use more info and photos.

A Princess Theatre, situated on Pike Street in Shinnston, was listed in a 1921 Clarksburg city directory. However, as the Princess building at 314 Pike features a parapet inscription reading “A&M 1940” I don’t think we can be sure the 1921 Princess was the same house. The Princess might have moved to a new building in 1940, or the original building might have been remodeled at that time.

The building was a restaurant for a while but is currently serving as a dance studio (as of 2021.)
