The August 23, 1971, issue of Boxoffice said that the Stanley Theatre building in Selinsgrove had been sold and the theater dismantled. The house had closed earlier that year. The item gave the address as 6 N. Market Street. If that’s correct, then the theater has been demolished. The site is now occupied by a commercial building that resembles a Victorian house, but is clearly of fairly recent construction.

The Boxoffice article named Charles Ulrich as the original owner of the Stanley Theatre. A 1919 publication of the State of Pennsylvania listed building plans approved during the month of October by the Bureau of Inspection, and a motion picture theater for Charles P. Ulrich at Selinsgrove was among them. The architect was listed as William Douden. This might have been among Douden’s last projects in Pennsylvania, as in 1920 he closed his office in Millersburg and reestablished himself in Union, South Carolina.
