Via Cinema Treasures member VernonTexasHistory:
The Vernon Theatre was located on Main Street and was formerly known at the More Theatre. It was located between the Municipal Building and the Pendleton Music Store in 1917. It had been renamed Vernon Theatre by 1926 with seating for 600. By 1941 it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Hoblitzelle & O'Donnell. The seating capacity was given as 864. By 1950 it was listed with 923 seats and was destroyed by fire in September 1952, although was still listed as open in the Film Daily Yearbook 1955.
Photographs of both of these theatres as they existed in their time can be seen in the book Vernon, by Preston Cary.
