The correct address of the Park Theatre’s building is 511 S. Jefferson Street. Google currently says that the dessert shop that occupied the premises for some time, Delish on Jefferson, has been permanently closed. The upper floors of the building are occupied by the Knights of Pythias Lodge, but Google says that is also closed, though only temporarily.
