Priteca's design for a Pantages Theatre in New Orleans, LA, was never built. A notice appeared in the American Architect and Architecture (as well as Platts Power, vol. 53, no. 13, p. 529) that stated: "Bids are being received by B.M. Priteca, archt, 507-11 Pantages Bldg, Seattle, Wash., for building a 6 story theatre to be erected on Canal & South Rampart Sts., New Orleans. A. Pantages, 3rd & University Aves., Seattle, Wash., owner. $1,500,000." (See "Building News: Louisiana," American Architect and Architecture, vol. CXIX, no. 2363, 04/06/1921, p. 10.)
