The 1926 and 1929 Film Daily Yearbooks list this theater as the Albany, seating 299.

The theater was open by September 1914, when it’s briefly mentioned in the Moving Picture World as being owned and operated by A.T. Chado, seating 300, charging five cents for a program of four reels, and using Universal service.

I live just a few blocks from there and recently too photos of it. The import/wholesale shop appears to be closed; the building looks vacant. Hope that doesn’t mean another teardown is imminent.
