The October 16, 1915 issue of The American Contractor said that the theater building being erected for the Fenray Amusement Co. at Martins Ferry had been designed by architect Charles W. Bates of Wheeling, West Virginia.

This PDF (from DavidZornig’s link) has an article about theaters in Martins Ferry, and says that the Fenray opened on January 8, 1916, and operated until February 29, 1964. Although it reopened and closed a few more times in the late 1960s and early 1970s, it was finally dismantled in 1972.
