A bit more: W.A. “Lon” Barris purchased the Electric Theatre in 1916 and changed its name to the Barris Theatre relaunching under that name on February 24, 1916 with Charles Dudley in “Neal of the Navy.” On July 20, 1918, Barris closed the Barris and concentrated his theatre efforts to the Barris Theatre in Marionville, Missouri. The town was served by an airdome in 1919. But under new owners, the venue relaunched in 1920 under the name Doug’s Playhouse closing briefly in 1921. It reverted to the Electric Theatre nameplate in 1921.
