From "The Moving Picture World, Volume 29, July 15, 1916

Remodeled for motion pictures in 1916 by Thomas W. Lamb, architect.  The total cost of improvements is placed at $115,000.  The two frame balconies, now in the playhouse, will be removed, and in their stead will be erected one balcony of steel and concrete construction.  The gallery entrance on Beaver Street will also be removed and an open court will replace the present unsightly entrance.  The main entrance and the lobby will be widened about twice the present plans.  It is not yet known when the improvements will be completed, but it is expected that it will be ready for use in the early part of the fall
