Information for this tour was contributed by RW Daniel.

The Amuzu Theater, located at 317 South Elm Street, opened in 1910 as a moving picture house. Within a year, first-class vaudeville was added.

According to the Greensboro Record, "The interior is fitted with 250 good opera seats. The ventilation is good and the entertainment given is such as to make friends for the house. The theater is owned by the Amuzu Theater Company, who have placed the house under the management of A.J. Jackson, who came to this city from Roanoke, Virginia. He is familiar with the requirements of such a house and with the class of shows that will appeal to refined people. Since taking charge he has proven his ability to give the people good amusement at the lowest possible prices."
