Should be listed as demolished. There still stands an empty lot where it once was.

According to the article Tinseltoes linked to, the South Street Theatre opened in July, 1914. William P. Donlon, operator of the Orpheum Theatre on Lafayette Street, took over this house after the original Orpheum burned in March, 1917.

Our Movie Houses: A History of Film & Cinematic Innovation in Central New York, by Norman O. Keim, lists the Orpheum as having been in operation until 1953.
