There is now a vacant lot at this address which is next to the South Bend State Bank building (at 911 S. Michigan Street).

Here is an item from the November 10, 1928, issue of Motion Picture News:

“The Armo Theatre, South Bend’s newest theatre, is scheduled to open on November 9th. The house has 550 seats and was completely equipped by the National Theatre Supply Company. M. Larman, the proprietor, is a newcomer in the motion picture field.”
The December 8 issue of the same publication said that the Armo Theatre had recently opened, but gave the seating capacity as 750. Later issues of the magazine also spell the owner’s surname as Lerman rather than Larman.
