Back in the late 1800s there was a Walnut Street Theatre (no specific address). Wonder if this was a replacement.

You are right about the early 1800’s date, Walnut Street Theater opened as a legitmate play live theater stage and later morphed into a movie theater about 1915 , it belonged to Uke Libson’s chain of downtown houses.
