Oops; thanks for pointing that out; I had just previously been looking at the Alhambra page, which has the same postcard view, did not notice the theater’s AKA.
There are two pictures of the former Odeon in Duncan on its page at CinemaTour.

That appears to be the Alhambra Theater in Breckenridge which has its own page here on CT.

Here is a picture of the interior of the Enosburg Opera House’s auditorium; it appears to have a flat floor with no orchestra pit.

If the information on this website is correct about this theater, Loew’s operated this theater from 1920 to 1926. Schine’s Rochester opened in 1927, so what Tinseltoes speculates essentially makes sense, depending on when Loew’s took over the Rochester from Schine; Loew’s was operating the Rochester at least as of 1930.
The information also indicates that the 1928 RKO Palace was built approximately on the site occupied by Gordon’s/Loew’s Star. Perhaps someone made Loew’s an offer they could not refuse on the Gordon’s property (or perhaps Loew’s only leased Gordon’s), so there may have been a short or long gap in time before the Loew’s name appeared on a theater in Rochester.

If the information on its Wikipedia entry is correct, in the section labeled Theatrical run, Lean himself ordered and supervised the cuts during the roadshow runs in response to criticism that the film was running too long. There is also a story that Lean later blamed this initial set of cuts on demands from Producer Sam Speigel, which may or may not have been true. The film’s entry at the IMDb (under Alternate Versions) describes the cuts in detail.
Directors sometimes do this; Kubrick took almost twenty minutes out of “2001” after its premiere. It is usually done to tighten the pacing.
