I can answer my own question. The building still stands and is known as the Empress Cultural Centre. Click on Become A Friend, “The Empress Cultural Centre is a non-profit charitable corporation, working to create a cultural centre for the West End in the former Cinema V building at 5560 Sherbrooke Street West”.
