Google maps changes this address to North Kanawha St, but every search I do returns South Kanawha St for the Kanawha Lounge.

Yuck, a bar? I am in the process of buying and rehabbing the Philippi Grand and if it proves profitable I want to work on reopening other theaters in WV, KY, OH, PA, MD, and VA. There are so many wonderful old theaters with more character than any modern cookie cutter places.
