The auditorium is still walled off from the rest of the building. About 10 years ago I saw the back door open and went in. The theatre is in a dilapidated state, but could easily have been restored. Storefronts are fully occupied, and the theatre itself is next door to the former Strand Theatre. The Strand’s lobby functions as a restaurant, with the kitchen ‘under the balcony’. There’s a door off of the kitchen leading into the unused auditorium.
When both theatres were open, they shared one long trapezoid-shaped marquee which was attached to both buildings.
