Wrong street. Address was almost certainly 101 N Gex St. Reesman’s Theatre (note the spelling, not sure which is right) is on the 1916 Sanborn, in the top floor of a 2-story brick building which had two storefronts downstairs. It was also offering vaudeville at this point. Either this received a severe remodel, or it was demolished. At any rate, an exceedingly unattractive one story mess of metal siding occupies the lot now.

Sometime in the last month, the roof fell in, popping nearly all of the south wall out onto the street. From the substantial brick construction revealed, it must be the original building with the top story removed. At any rate, it is for sure demolished now.
