Try this view of the Pantheon’s site. When the link opens, you will see what I presume to be the shell of the former theater in the tan colored building with the rounded corner and geometric patterns of dark colored bricks on its facade.

Here’s an alternate view to the West that really conveys the orientation of the former theater. It looks like the auditorium ran straight back from the corner of the building where W. Burnside Ave intersects with Harrison Ave at a 45 degree angle from either road. You can follow the roofline from what must have been the screen wall at the rear corner as it angles up and fans out to accommodate the array of stadium seating.

It appears as though there is still a marquee on the western most end of the W. Burnside facade. If this marks the original entrance, then one entered a lobby that sat to the left and towards the rear of the auditorium. It might be worthwhile to take a trip to the site and see if the marquee itself is the original one dressed up for its current use.
