It turns out this theatre is not demolished after all. The lobby has been converted to retail and the auditorium has been converted to apartments.

According to the Hartford Courant, the theater was sold for $36,000 on July 15, 1963, and was then closed.

An account by Gary J. Bravy in the Theatre Histocial Society’s Marquee magazine of 1993 describes the Arch Street theater as being a newer theater built probably during the 1940s, not really distinguished, but clean and servicable, with a vaguely art deco motif. The theater stopped appearing in newspaper advertisements in 1964 and the building was later converted into apartments or demolished and replaced by an apartment building.
