The theatre was in the building to the left past the intersecting street on the Google image. The zoom feature is of no help in this instance.

The entrance to the Irish-American Center is at the corner; presumably that was also the case when a theater. The roof line of the auditorium begins some distance from the corner. The auditorium runs parallel to Willis Avenue with stores and apartments fronting the street.
