1st Movie Shown at the Wilson Theater & Photos wanted

~
Who could forget the fabulous Crest or the Tower Theater? Fresno’s drive-ins were the most popular with teens, among them the Moon-Glow and the Sunset. The world’s largest outdoor screen was housed at the Sunnyside Drive-in. Did you hide in the trunk to save 50 cents or possibly steam up the car’s windows?

Does anyone know what the 1st movie that was shown at the Wilson Theater was? If anyone has old pictures of the Wilson it would be great to see them

Here is a photo and a Fresno Bee ad of the Wilson theater in 1935 which was showing the feature: The Mighty Barnum. However, not the very first movie shown there.
