Information for this tour was contributed by Daniel Gibbs.
Opened 1915 as the "Gertrude McCoy", named after the silent actress. Apparently she'd fallen out of fashion by 1927 as the name was changed to Fulton that year. Closed in 1952 but still there -- appears to be in good shape although it's just sitting empty. Great example of early movie house design -- the facade is a giant arch flanked by Ionic pillars.
