Hi again, I’ve worked quite extensively in this area and am excited to contribute a little of my knowledge to this entry. The New Comet according to the St. Louis Argus was owned by a Mr. Zimmerman until 1918 when it was sold to Thomas James, then owner of the New Movie Theater. I’ve uploaded a clipping from the Argus to source this claim as well as an excerpt from a transfer contract that mentions the ownership of the theater. (I only mention this because it appears the previous description was incorrect in stating that Zimmerman and Pohlman owned the theater till 1933.)
