The Avenue A Theater is listed in the 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Directory and shows up in newspaper movie ads from 1918 to 1924.

In 1929 the existing buildings on this block were demolished to erect two apartment blocks called Ageloff Towers, still standing, that have some nice deco details.

If the Avenue A was on 4th Street (where the Ageloff Towers stand) then what theater was on Avenue A between 6th and 7th, the building still standing?

That would be the Loews Hollywood, see the listing with photos on this site. And there’s a link to a photo from when it was operating.
