I believe this theatre was actually the Jefferis theatre. The theatre was named after its owner A. B. Jefferis.

Boxoffice, Oct. 19, 1940: “Piedmont - A. B. Jefferis is now operating his new 400-seater.”

First it was renamed the Piedmont Theatre in Spring 1932, then it was renamed the Jefferis Theatre on August 28, 1940, and finally it was renamed the Melinda Theatre on January 1, 1958.

The theater closed in 1961 and the former theater became an office.
