From the current google street view, it looks like they’ve brouight the building back into use – probably as storage – at least it isn’t all bricked up anymore

Someone Who Was There tells me that he was in Springfield last week and found the Jefferson still standing.

The Jefferson opened on Oct. 6, 1921 and closed in 1962.
In the early ‘70’s, it reopened briefly as the Jefferson Fine Arts before closing forever. The theater was gutted and it became an electrical supply buisness. Later, the building stood empty and boarded up with only it’s name carved in stone above where the marquee once hung.
