Information for this tour was contributed by Daniel Gibbs.

The Maryland, with the Auditorium/Mayfair, was part of Col. Kernan's Triple Million Dollar Enterprise. (The third part was Kernan's Hotel.) Mostly a live theatre, it occasionally showed a picture, especially if the management figured they could get a bigger turnout for the picture than from whatever vaudeville attraction might be available at the moment. Notable because, among other things, it was the house that showed the famous "Great Train Robbery" film in March 1904. To this day, if you visit the site, you can see the scars of its balconies etched in the walls of the still-standing Hotel Kernan.
