Thats' Before 1935-After 1969. dates came from the International Film Almanac, which has loads of mistakes. Someone in town will have to check the old newspaper listings year by year.

The NRHP registration form for the Downtown Mount Holly Historic District says that the Gaston Theatre was built between 1922 and 1929, per Sanborn Maps. It was most likely the planned house noted in the January 19, 1928 issue of Film Daily, which said that Beam and Plummer, operators of the Palace Theatre at Bessemer City and the Princess and Lyric at Shelby, North Carolina, had signed contracts for the construction of their new, 500-seat Mount Holly house.

The NRHP form notes that Mount Holly’s other early movie house, the Holly Theatre, was located on East Charlotte Avenue. The 250-seat Holly was listed in the 1926 FDY.
