The Royal and the Elvin were even closer than “a few blocks—” they were nearly across Main St from one another. Adam Marsland points out that while the Elvin was demolished (?1961) the Royal still stands in altered state. I can add that the State, a block to the east, opened in 1939 and later renamed the Cinema, has also been lost. Thus the oldest still stands, while those which overcame it are gone.

It appears there’s been an error in dating the photo— the Cinema was demolished in 1996.
