It looks like the owner has turned the arcade into a dollar store.

Added a photo with comment by Rachel Hildenbrandt- The Lindley seems to be very much intact, actually. It’s impossible to get a good photo inside, but it’s possible to see – when situated strategically – the proscenium arch, curtains on either side of the arch (pictured), and the a central chandelier with connected, surrounding light fixtures.
