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.
