Is this theater still standing and waiting to be restored?

A Rex Theatre was operating in Corry as early as 1919. I’ve also found a house called the Family Theatre which opened in December, 1913; a 526-seat house called the Lyric Theatre opened in 1914 and mentioned again in 1916; a Grand Theatre in operation in 1919; and an Amuse-U Theatre in operation in 1915 and 1926. The 1913-1914 Cahn guide lists a 731-seat, ground-floor house at Corry called the Library Theatre. The town appears to have had a fairly busy theatrical history, but the Rex is the only indoor house we have listed as yet.
