Shooting for an Elizabethan architectural style, the Fairmount Theatre launched September 8, 1913. It was J. Fred Zimmerman’s third theatre. Patterned Weber and Fields' Music Hall, the white exterior theatre with white marble floors was nicknamed, “The Little White House.” Bathed in green and gold on its interior, the theatre would transition from vaudeville and plays to movies. The Stanley-Warner took on the venue modernizing it and later closing it at the end of lease on August 12, 1958 with “Bridge of the River Kwai” and “Man from God’s Country.”
