The Schine circuit’s Vernon Theatre in Mount Vernon, Ohio, was listed in the “Theaters Under Construction” column of The Film Daily, April 9, 1938. The architect for the project was John Eberson.

Does anyone know when this theater was demolished?

I haven’t found a demolition date, but the theater was apparently in operation into 1975. An article in a Kenyon College Alumni Bulletin says “[Kenyon House] stretched the entire block from the side on South Main Street to the corner alley, the same alley many alumni will remember as being next to the front entrance to Schine’s Vernon Theater, which Kenyon students frequented to see movies from 1938 to 1975.”

It was demolished within a few years of closing, though. A 1960 view at Historic Aerials shows the theater, but it is gone in the 1981 aerial, which is the next one available.
