As Google Maps has seen fit to place the Royal Theatre in Franklinville, the next town west of Ramseur, here is a corrected Street View. Oddly, Google Maps has no trouble finding the correct location from its own search page.

The photo labeled RM:17 on this page of the 1985 book The Architectural History of Randolph County North Carolina depicts the former Royal Theatre building. Photo RM:16 also shows the building, plus the building next door which is still standing today. Presumably the photos date from shortly before the book’s publication, so the Royal was demolished sometime after the mid-1980s.
