The image on Google Maps Street View is so washed out by the sun you can make out the outline of the building, and no more. Not much use, that is.

Not sure. I only found the theater by going through the American Classic Images database.

Move the gold guy down the street a bit and you get a much better view of the theater.

I worked at this theatre back in 1976 to 1979. The separate box office,balcony and restrooms upstairs were still there from the segregation times and you could still hear a gun shot from the balcony at 10:30pm everynight when that guy was shot. Did not like being up there working alone AT ALL.

Everytime we heard the shot, I thought a xenon bulb had exploded but to no avail. You could smell fresh burnt gun powder though.
