Status should be closed/demolished.

it was originally located on the east side of fourth between Broadway & Thayer. The building was built in 1915 including the theater which shared the building with a photo studio next door and the Elks Lodge upstairs. The theater was closed sometime before 1927 aand was later taken over by a furniture store. That whole side of the block was leveled for a federal complex in the 1970’s.

Did you see the “Hinckley” plate at the top of the building? I would imagine that this building pre-existed the theater. That early they were probably weren’t building too many houses just for film exhibition. Weren’t they mostly storefronts around then?
