This web page has a photo tour of historic buildings on Chatham’s S. Main Street. The page doesn’t give the names of the theaters, but indicates only two buildings served as movie houses. The theater at 26 S. Main, according to the accompanying text, moved to a quonset style building on Pruden Street, which means it was probably the location of the Ritz Theatre.

The other former theater building, at 15 S. Main, is thus the most likely candidate to have been the Cyril Theatre. It is currently occupied by a restaurant. I’ve looked through all the pages on the photo tour and no other buildings except the Chatham Theatre on Pruden Street are listed as ever having been movie theaters.
