First opened as the Premier Theatre on February 5, 1913 with the film “Mr. Dave Marlowe” along with a musical number by the names of Marnane and Grenier, and a performances by a trio simply named as “Tenor, Baritone, and Boy Soprano”. The Premier Theatre became the Please-U Theatre on December 16, 1914, and closed on May 31, 1923 after being destroyed by a massive fire which destroyed many places. It is massive that I cannot list all of the places the fire had destroyed so far. The fire destroyed the Please-U, a music store, a market, and many tenants, among others. Luckily enough, nobody was hurt.

Uploaded the image of an ad which appeared in the July 3, 1920 Caledonian-Record. Love the caption: “Photo Plays for Particular People”.
