It appears that a parking lot is at that address now. Status should be “demolished.”

The listing in the 1927 FDY also says that the Whittenton Theatre was open 7 days per week. Surprisingly, not all movie theaters back in those days were open on a daily basis, especially in smaller towns.

The theatre was also known as the Grand, per the 1941 MGM survey card, posted among the photos here. Same address.
