Could this building be the old Ricky Theater?

The Ricky theater was located on the southeast corner of 30th Street and Shelby Ave., across from Hill’s neighborhood grocery. While the building above appears to be the theater, it has undergone many changes since. The proprietors of the theater were two brothers who had a background in theater management and the “Rickey” was named for a nephew of the brothers. As a young boy, I had a part-time job cleaning up the seating area after a showing and as payment would receive free tickets to future movies.
