My great grandfather played the piano during the silent movies at the Tyler. George Stevens

The MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the Tyler Theatre has an exterior photo dated May 1941. There was a narrow entrance in a building which appears to be 1 ½ stories high. There was a small triangle marquee above, with poster cases on either side of the doors and poster boards above the doors. It’s not possible to read the posters and the marquee looks blank. The Report states that the Tyler is at 532 Tyler St., that it has been a MGM customer for over 15 years; that it was built in 1915, is in Poor condition, and has 524 seats, apparently all on one floor.
