According to a 1915 Sanborn map, there was a closed movie theater (“picture show” according to the label) located at about 2128 Main. The map also shows two more “picture shows” on Howard between the library and Main Street.
According to a 1917 Sanborn map, there was a theater located just southwest of the intersection of Laurel and 4th Street, with the entrance facing 4th.
I found this postcard which, I believe, shows the Alcazar as the building at the very left of the image. It looks like there’s a poster on a short stand between two people, and I believe I can make out “Alcazar” on the little sign protruding from the building. I can’t tell if the building is still standing today.
I highly doubt it. The Silver Moon’s website says nothing about it ever switching over to being a negro theater. Sounds like you might’ve found a new drive-in.
Here is my picture from June 2011. Sorry about the top of it getting washed out. The 3PM sun isn’t too picture-friendly.

Oddly enough, 1st and Main don’t intersect; 1st doesn’t even run north-south.
Here are two pictures that I took in May 2011.
Here is a circa 1991 picture of the marquee, which has since been removed.
The car dealership that replaced most of the theater opened in either late 2004 or early 2005 and had already closed by 2011.
The address listed does not map properly. It should be changed to 3588 US 1.
Here is an undated picture and here is a panoramic shot from 1926.
I believe 80 12th Street is the Board of Trade building, which was home to the Court Theatre. Perhaps this was an alternate name?
Here are my pictures of the Gibson Theater from April 2011.

It would’ve been about 2000 Old US 40. I think there’s a Pepsi plant there, now.
Oh man, I’d love to get my hands on that book!
