The Wesley Little theater was in the same block, on the same side of the street, but that theater opened in 1942. The Movie Show might have been long gone by then.

So who’s going to go check it out – you or me? :) The Wesley Little was at 1029, so the Movie Show Theatre building might still be there.

No, I took pictures of the Wesley Little in June. There wasn’t anything further east that looked like a theater. What was interesting was a building at the intersection of Vernon and I believe Avalon, a few blocks west. It’s now an AT&T building, but it looks to me like it was an immense theater at one time. I would be curious to know that was.

The overhead shot of the AT&T building does not really look like a theatre. It looks more like a warehouse than a theatre, if it was an older theatre of size it would have some form of a stagehouse from that era.
