The Garden Theater opened in 1913. I found a photo of the Garden Theater on a library site. (Click below for the photo) In the photo, there is an advertisement on the right side that has the name “Lew Dockstadter” and on the left side of the photo by or on the bottom of the door there is a sign that says “Dan”. I did some checking and I could only find one movie listed for Lew Dockstadter and the title of that movie was “Dan”. Imdb lists that movie as 1914 so I would assume that this photo was taken close to that year. The Garden Theatre was remodeled in the fall of 1917 to the plans of architect Charles Howard Crane. It was closed in the spring of 1929.
