Boxoffice noted in June 1952 that the theater building at 49th & Yocum was being auctioned off. It’s the second paragraph of the Philadelphia items:

The address most likely is correct. I lived in the 1200 block South and the movie was a block from where I lived, so I concur with the address now noted.

LM, I think you’re right. The odds would be against two similar-names theaters a block and a half apart. The blocks in the urban areas of Philadelphia are for the most part narrow as it was all rowhouses. Subsequently, the two addresses wouldn’t be too far apart.
