I found this pic of the Bristol Theatre on e-Bay.  The pic is an old drug store type print and not in very good shape.

"October, 1951" is written on the back of the pic.

 

The Theatre used to issue a weekly 4-page flyer entitled "Bristol Movie News".  I don't know when it stopped, but the Vol.2, No. 48 notation 

for the 30 July 1939 issue pictured below suggests that the first issue appeared sometime around September of 1936.

Articles about the Theatre from the now defunct local paper, The Bristol Enterprise, can be found here.
