The August 29, 1914 issue of Moving Picture World had this item about the opening of the Medbury Theatre: “The New Medbury Theater on Hastings street, near Medbury Theater [sic], was completed earlier than expected and was formally opened July 27. T. Gardner is manager. The theater seats 400.” Note: If there was an earlier Medbury Theatre, it was not listed in the 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory, but I think it’s more likely that the MPW item simply contained a mistake, and it was meant to read “…near Medbury Avenue.”
