If the “HGHLAND TEMPLE” was the same building as the Alberta Theater. It looks like (if you go up the street on the right) they tore the building down….sad.

The December 9, 1916, issue of The Moving Picture World said that the Victoria Theatre had opened in 1911, but it gave the location as 17th and Alberta Streets. It also gave the seating capacity as about 400. If the magazine is correct about the location, the Victoria might have moved to a new building sometime in the 1920s. If the magazine got the location wrong, then the theater must have been enlarged.

Here is a photo of the Highland Temple mentioned by ChrisAckerman.
