The Victoria was on the west side of South Clinton Avenue, at 37 South Clinton. The Temple Theater was two buildings to the north, across Clinton from the Lyceum Theater. The Lowe’s Rochester would have been a block to the south, the Century, RKO Palace and the Strand a few blocks to the north, and the Cook Opera House (Family Theater) two blocks to the west.

Not one of these theaters survived the Depression and urban renewal. The 1935 plat map shows the site of the Victoria as a parking lot.
