If anyone has any photos of this theater (interior or exterior) from 1915-1949 it would be greatly appreciated, as it was designed by WS Joy an architect I am constantly curious about.
1911 rendering and 1919 photo added.
This item from the July 3, 1941 issue of Film Daily indicates that the remodeling of the Norwood Theatre that year was actually to be a complete reconstruction.The building, now completely gutted, is currently listed for sale for $625,000.
