The street name is Balbo Drive, not Balboa. Originally 7th Street, it was renamed in 1933 after Italo Balbo. Not sure why maps are showing it as an Avenue. There was recently a protest to rename it after Ida B. Wells. Two links below.

I found a 1929 photo of the Majestic Theatre on Main Street, but do not see a page for it yet. Did it have another name at any point? And does anyone know the correct address? If so I will create the page. It has Majestic on the marquee, and Broadway on a blade sign.
