A section about the Cayuga Theatre on this web page gives the theater’s opening year as 1911. It also says the house was renamed the Aardvark Theatre in the early 1950s. After closing in 1955, the building as a church for some time, and was eventually demolished to make way for expansion of the Roosevelt Expressway.

The Cayuga Theatre was at the corner of Germantown Avenue and Cayuga Street, which is the 4300 block- probably 4371 Germantown Avenue.

4731 Germantown Avenue is LOUDOUN PARK at Germantown Avenue and W. Apsley Street. It is definitely not the where the Cayuga/Aardvark Theatre was. The Cayuga/Aardvark Theatre was located on the corner of Germantown Avenue and W. Cayuga Street, now NICETOWN PARK (former site of the theatre). Joe sounds correct with 4371 Germantown Avenue! It appears that the middle numbers were reversed.
