This looks like the same 1941 photo.

Here’s a 1941 view as the Decatur Theatre. A sign on the wall above the marquee mentions “Free Cash” being awarded regularly in what was probably a game like Bingo or Screeno: View link

Two different websites list this theater as closing in 1956.

So this theater probably closed in the late 40’s then.

The 1930 edition of the Film Daily Yearbook has it listed as the U.S. Theater with 1,400 seats.

In the 1941 edition of the Film Daily Yearbook it has been re-named Decatur Theater with 950 seats (900 in the 1943 edition). It is not listed in 1950 or 1957 editions of F.D.Y. that I have.
