Paramount-Richards Theatres Circuit listed the Buck at least back to 1938. The Circui tclosed by the Buck and the Rose theaters on September 10, 1949. While the Rose would find new life as the Ritz then Rebel (location #2), the Buck closed permanently with a double feature of Charles Sterrett in “The Durango Kid” and Smiley Burnett in “Quick on the Trigger” supported by the final chapter of the serial, “Bruce Gentry,” a cartoon and a newsreel.

In 1951, Hattiesburg Federal Savings and Loan bought the building and demolished it. There are no listings with Gulf States Theatres - just Paramount-Richards.
