From LIFE Photo Archives, 1944; is that the Baltimore Gayety in the far background?

Here is an article from 2000 about the red light district where the Gayety was located:

I went by it in the 1950s but never went into it. It was a typical Burley theater of that period. Very popular with sailors ! The entrance was brightly lit and rather garish. The nearby area was honky-tonk. I’m fairly certain that it showed movies in between stage shows at that time.
