Here is the history of the 200 block of E. 16th.

Chris1982, where did you come up the address? 213 E 16th would be part of a 1916 apartment building. I have reset the street view to an empty lot that had a Chinese laundry in 1927 & 1935. The Body Shop and Auto Painting building still exists at 230, 236 E 16th, the blue/gray & white building to the right. The laundry building collapsed after 1990, but if you enlarge the 1927 or 1935 detail on the above link the laundry building has the same shape as the Boxoffice photo.

My error, the address according to the City Directory was 226 E. 16th St..

Tinseltoes, thanks to Chris1982, we now know that the Boxoffice picture is of the old landury building after conversion.

Chris1982, Thanks for including your source. It is a good idea to include source when adding information, I think, so others can follow up in future years.
