VernonTexasHistory commented about Vernon Plaza Theatre on Oct 21, 2015 at 2:54 pm

The Pictorium Theatre in Vernon, Wilbarger County, Texas is not the same as the theater pictured above.

The Pictorium Theatre was located on Pease Street between F. W. Woolworth and the Herring National Bank. One of my 3rd Great Grand-Uncles was the doorman for the Pictorium in 1933.

The Vernon Theater was located on Main Street and was formerly known at the More Theater. It was located between the Municipal Building and the Pendleton Music Store in 1917.

Photographs of both of these theatres as they existed in their time can be seen in the book Vernon, by Preston Cary.
