Found more information on this theater. The demolition occurred on June 10, 2009. A portion of a Wallis News-Review article read, “A piece of Wallis history literally bit the dust last week. The building that housed the Cole Theater, Uncle Ed’s Place and Marvin’s was demolished Wednesday. Work is progressing by Hein Contracting towards a complete cleanup of the lots located on State Highway 36 between Highway 60 and FM 1093. A spokesman for the building owners stated that the buildings had fallen into such a state of disrepair that demolition was the only option. It is hoped that a cleanup of the property will offer opportunities for new business in the center of town.”

It appears that this must be updated to “demolished.” According to the September 2013 Google Street View, the building is no longer standing.
