Yes. It is The Universal Church today. Below is the Photos page from their Facebook page.

I also ganked one of the 2015 photos and will add it to the Photos section here as well.

Thank you for the clarification. The virtual tour looked deeper than I guess it actually is.

I went to that Savannah Taphouse link posted in 2015 by JackCoursey, and it has a 360 view/virtual tour of the interior of both floors. It appears to have the original lobby floor, and additional seating on a second floor above what was presumably the auditorium. The kitchen appears to be on the former main auditorium floor.

DavidZornig commented about AMC Loews Norridge 10 on May 16, 2016 at 7:49 pm

It’s probably because of the clear spans of former auditoriums and lower costs of redevelopment versus demolition and new construction. Not to mention the time factor to tear down and start from scratch.

Plans for a new AMC theater and a Miller’s Ale House via the Tribune.
