Actually, it was gone quite a while ago. It’s missing from the 2012 streetview. The sign in the empty lot claims its the future home of another theater, which looks like a sheet metal box in the drawing, but the satellite view shows the lot still empty.

According to streetview, this is now gone. Not sure why they bothered. Would probably have survived another 30 years in that climate.

The Wells Theatre opened in 1948. It was open at least into the early-1970’s
