Is the Queen Theatre at 2427 Jensen Drive listed at Cinema Treasures under another name?

I don’t see at CT page for the Rialto across the street though. The one with “Dangerous Innocence” on the marquee.

The December 24, 1913 issue of The Houston Post ran an item about a special Christmas Day program to be presented at the new Queen Theatre, and added this brief encomium to the house:

“Since its opening less than a week ago, this beautiful new home of the photo play has been catering to hundreds of Hustonians dally, and all have marveled at the wonderful excellence of its appointments. The ladles retiring room, the smoking loges, the beauty of the theater itself and the many conveniences established in it for the benefit of its patrons, have proved a revelation to all.”
