This PDF has a brief history of the Princess Theatre, with two photos, one of which is a view of the auditorium from the screen end and shows the small shelf balcony, the only part of the theater in which patrons from Putnam County’s fairly small black community were allowed to sit.

The Princess opened on October 1, 1935. The document also mentions some of the other movie theaters in Putnam County. It also includes an extensive list of movies that were shown at the Princess over the years.
