I think this theater is demolished as there is no building at that address resembling a theater.

After a movie c.1959 the manager told me and a friend if we put all the seats back up he would give us passes, which he did. It was a very nice modern theater, not far from the Bullard factory.

The building is still there but has been heavily modified. It’s currently a U-Haul Storage facility. If you look carefully you can still see the remains of the rock texture wall in the above picture inside of the building.
