An article about John Karzin in the June 13, 1925 issue of Moving Picture World confirms that Karzin sold the World’s Dream around 1910/1911 to concentrate on a theater he had opened in Springfield, Illinois. There, he opened a second house in partnership with Gus Kerasotes, to whom he sold his interest in both houses in 1912. He then returned to St. Louis, where he operated a number of theaters over the years, but he appears never to have had any further connection to the World’s Dream.

Just a wee point of contention here, I have a few clippings/documents that show Thomas James and uncle John James (future owners of the Comet/Douglass theaters) purchased the World in 1910/1911. I’ve uploaded his obit where this is mentioned.
