New building opened 7-3-22. Designed by Erle Stillwell; air conditioned, 420 seats
Renovated and expanded in 1921 by Erle Stillwell (architect). Moved to a new building on June 2, 1922 (HendersonvilleNews_1922-7-3_Theater.tif). Could be owned by same people as the Grand, or could possibly be the Grand? The Queen was used as a "repurposed" retail space and took the place of a grocery store in the Hyder Building, Stillwell's first work in theatre architecture. The Queen Theater appears in the 1927 Hendersonville city directory but is not listed in the 1937 directory. No directories are available between those years, thus the 1927 close date is an estimate. In the 1937 directory, however, the State Theater appears, located at the Queen's address on 424 N. Main Street.
Hyder building; adjoining city hall; balcony (Sanborn Fire Insurance Map, Hendersonville, N.C., September 1926, p. 6)
