I cannot find the grand opening date, but the earliest attraction I can find is a January 18, 1928 attraction for “Aunt Dinah” and “Glover And Snooks”. The hunt still continues.

The building at 218 N Dargon St is indeed a barber college, but the above picture is now an architectural firm located at 155 N Dargon. Which one is the theater?
