This is the building at 614 Washington Street in July 2012, so it appears this cinema has been demolished – the foyer is now the entrance to Chinatown metro station.

The long lobby entrance hall was cut and turned into the new Chinatown Orange line subway entrance. However according to people working in the office of the building, The theater and lobby still exist behind this area. But the building management refuses to let anyone see them, due to “security” concerns. However, if there were a concerted effort by the city government and the entertainment community, the theater could possibly be refurbished and returned to it’s former condition.

I hope so. Such a sad fate for a theater which is not TOO big and the building seems to be in good shape otherwise. Getting that concrete out of there split off the balcony would be the difficult part. Here in SF the Golden Gate Theatre had that problem but managed it after Cinerama there.
