This theatre still remains, or at least the lobby building does. It is on the corner of South Cedar Street and East 8th Street.
The Riviera burnt down. The organ probably went with it.
Using Bing’s overhead view it appears that 114 N Second St is a more accurate address than 216.
The theatre has reopened as a live theatre. http://www.inmantheatre.org/
This theatre has reopened as Flagship Premium Cinemas Falmouth.

This was listed as the Cozy Corner Theatre in the 1914/15 AMPD.
The building at 818 S Broad St is listed as the Majestic Theatre in the 1920 city directory.
“Salem Lecture Hall” and “Opera House” are two separate listings in “Jno. B. Jeffery’s Guide and Directory to the Opera Houses, Theatres, Public Halls, Bill Posters, Etc. of the Cities and Towns of America” from 1883 and “Henry C. Miner’s American Dramatic Directory for the Season of 1887-‘88”.

The article at http://www.nj.com/salem/index.ssf/2014/12/salem_county_rewind_one_of_salem_citys_popular_movie_theaters_blacksmith_closes_up_shop_moves_out_of.html indicates the Fenwick has been demolished.
The building in the photo linked above is at 134 W Broadway, not 165 W Broadway like the address on this page says.
Listed in the 1914/15 American Motion Picture Directory as the Le Ray Theatre at 1 Walnut St. Currently a grocery store stands on that spot, but I cannot determine if it is the old theatre building or a newer building.
Correct address is 2 Church Street
This was the Trent. I was in New Rochelle looking through old city directories and the Town and the Trent both had the address of 600 Main Street in their times. It was also called the Cue at one point as well.
