Here is the 2008 preliminary landmark designation archive. It describes the property and lists various additional history that may or may not have been in previous dead links. I happened across it looking up something else.

I added a few recent pics of the West elevation. Sadly all the old building perimeter light sockets have had blank plates installed over the boxes.

I suspect the development that was to be built incorporating the Village Theatre facade either fell through or has been put on hold. The banners said Spring 2017, and one of them has blown over the top of the old marquee. Nothing has taken place except the vacancies on the North Avenue side. Elly’s Restaurant is still open.
