The Morgan Theater was listed in the 1914-15 edition of American Motion Picture Directory. It was renamed Cayuga Theatre and in 1921 it was renamed Universal Theater and a 2 manual Marr & Colton organ was installed. It was soon renamed Palace Theater. By 1941, it was part of the Schine Circuit, and it operated until at least 1950.

The auditorium is definitely demolished, but the lobby portion may be intact. Can’t really tell from the google photos.

The Morgan, Auburn’s oldest movie house became the Cayuga in 1921 then Universal (it’s owners moved from 133 Genesee ST)in 1922, then the Palace in 1927. Actually the Palace ran well into the 1960’s and was demolished to make way for Auburn’s Urban Renewal Project. The spot is now part of Wegman’s Super Market.

The November 2, 1921 issue of Motion Picture News mentions this house under two of its earlier names: “H. M. Schwartzwalder has redecorated and renovated the old Cayuga theatre in Auburn, N. Y. and has reopened it under the name of the Universal.”
