The theater was razed long ago. By the mid-1980s, Equibank occupied a new building on the site. It’s not clear if a bank is still there.

A National City is still operating at the site.

A view of 5th Street west from near Walnut Street appears on page 39 of McKeesport, by Michelle Tryon Wardle-Eggers and John W. Barna (Google Books preview), and it includes the Dreamland Theatre.

Studying the various photos in this book, it’s clear that the Dreamland Theatre was fairly close to the corner of Walnut Street, and not where the modern building from the 1960s is. It was across 5th Avenue from the Ruben Building, which was on the northwest corner of 5th and Walnut. I suspect that the modern addresses don’t quite match up with the historic addresses.
