Per the Star Valley Ford Theater website the Wray was built in 1935, is currently a live music & private screening venue, and has now has 280 seats.
Phone number appears to have been updated as well.
(Address on the website is for the rental office, not the theatre.)

It seems that the Roxy Theatre was a huge corner building, but the Ridge Avenue Theatre was in the middle of a block like the 1951 photo.
So maybe there was another theatre near Dupont Street?

Just posting this because it has the former Wilson Avenue Theater in an artist’s rendering of the proposed building next door.
But the project seems to be borrowing the theater’s address.

The Station Café—
Housed a millinery, dry goods and clothing store, and a grocery in the early years.
By the 1950s, this was the Cozy Theater, which boasted an unusual neon sign
featuring a box of strawberries at the top that appeared to fall over and spill
strawberries down the side. Altered with stucco and second floor window
Apparently haunted by Bob of Bob’s Shoe Store, the tenant after Cozy Theatre.
