This theater should be listed as Closed/Demolished. On May 12, 1958 a C/O was issued to a New building at this address for a one story retail store.

The site housed a police precinct from 1853 – 1912, I don’t know if the building was torn down when they left for 321 East 5 street and a new one built for the theatre or they just moved into the old stationhouse. I ordered the tax photo (block#446 lot#29) and it shows a three story building with a “Lucky Star Photo Plays” marquee.
The NYPL photo archive also has a view of the front of the building from across First Avenue – looking under the EL. Let me know what you find out
