The September 5, 1936, issue of The Film Daily said this: “A. M. Paulson will start work on his new theater at Amery, Wis., on Oct. 1.”

According to a document about the Amery Classic Theatre from the Amery Area Historical Society (PDF here, the New Amery Theatre opened on December 11, 1936. It had been built for Alfred M. Paulson, who had taken over the town’s earlier theater, the Gem, in 1934.

The building was designed by a local craftsman and self-taught architect, Emil Klinger (the document says Klingler, but other sources all say Klinger) who later established an architectural practice in Eau Claire.

As of this date, the Amery Classic Theatre is still dark, the last events noted on the web site having taken place in 2015.
