The size of the building and the timing of its opening suggest that the Radium Theatre was this project noted in the April 30, 1921 issue of The American Contractor:

“Theatre (M. P.): $17,000. 2 sty. 40x 107. Cape Charles, Va. Archt. B. B. Spigel, 112 Main St.. Norfolk. Owner Frank Parsons, Cape Charles & Capeville. Brk., t. c. trim. Plans drawn. Archt. ready for bids on gen. contr.”
Architect Bernard B. Spigel was practicing in Norfok at least as early as 1909, and as late as 1970.
