A correction: E. Commercial Street isn’t in downtown Springfield. It’s well north of downtown – a long east-west street of old business buildings that had a number of small theatres/hotels/bars/shops at one time.

Can’t tell if it still stands or not. There’s a building 1-2 spots over from the Google address that may be it – plain brick wall on the side. Remodeled storefront looks currently vacant. But can’t be sure if that was it or not. At the exact address there’s a vacant lot.

This information is wrong. I attended the opening of the Grenada in 1939 when the Ritz Brothers in “The Three Musketeers” was shown. After that it showed third-run movies for years, plus serials on the weekends. It was open all through the 1950s as far as I know and closed when TV caused many theaters to shut down. You can still see where it was when you see street views of the south side of Commercial Street several blocks east of Boonville, Ave.

The photo above of the empty lot at 408 E. Commercial St. is the correct location for the Granada. Here’s a partial photo of it in the late 1940s:
