The September 1911 Sanborn, which is unfortunately the latest available, does not show a theater. The NRHP listing for the opera house says the Lucille was built in 1912. Two suggestions for possible locations: 121 (corner), which is listed as dry goods on the map. It is much deeper than it appears on the map, suggesting a conversion. It also appears to have poster cases on the front, although they may be covered windows. The building is now apartments. Another possibility is the yellow brick building in the middle of the block on the other side of the street. It is likewise quite deep, and has an odd recessed entry on one side. That building is a business.

I’ve uploaded a picture of the building at 108 E Vermont. I’m pretty confident that it was the Lucille. The lot is empty on the 1911 map, which matches a 1912 construction.
