Theater is demolished. The whole north end of the block is covered by an ugly modern retail building.

This whole section of the block was a massive three-story brick building composed of many storefronts. It was built sometime between 1885 and 1890, and housed the Arlington Hotel in the main portion. The most recent use of the space that became the theater was as a billiard hall. The theater still appears on the 1942 map. The hotel closed in 1962, but the eyesore that occupies the corner looks a bit more recent.

Sorry, I wasn’t clear. It was a billiard hall up until it became a theater. There is no information after 1942.
