Address is 538 Broad Street, located in the Elyria Block building built in 1910. It had replaced the first Elyria Block building and previous American Theatre at the same address, which had burned down April 14, 1909. That one had been built in 1890. Street view confirms address and matches the photo. Brickwork and upper floor windows are a perfect match, and the first floor facade and former theatre entrance has been modified.
