The Baldwin Theater burned in the mid 1920’s, and was located across St. Louis Street from the Gilloiz Theater which is now being restored.

The history of the Baldwin Theatre that seymourcox linked to says that it was destroyed by fire on January 6, 1909. It’s possible that it never operated as a movie house, though it might have presented exhibitions of early films as a technological curiosity.
