The December 21, 1921 issue of Exhibitors Trade Review ran this item about the relaunch of the Palace Theatre as the Gillis:

“The Palace, Clarksburg, W. Va., which has been a vaudeville house since it was built ten years ago, has changed hands and is now the property of the Gillis Amusement Co. On Oct. 22 the Palace was closed and opened up on Oct. 31 after some repairs and improvements being made. It was opened as The Gillis, as a first-run movie house under the management of the Gillis family, C. L., A. M., and George D. Gillis, who formerly owned and managed and made a success of the Bijou of this city, which they sold Sept. 1, last year, 1920.”
