An inventory of historic buildings in Weston says that the Camden Block was built in 1896-1897. It housed a bank, a hotel, shops, and the Camden Opera House. The building was designed by the architectural firm of Yost & Packard. The auditorium was severely damaged by a fire in the 1960s and the remains were demolished, but the rest of the building survives. The inventory only gives the Main Street address of the building, but the theater entrance was probably at about 9 E. 2nd Street.

If you check Google Street View against the postcard picture, it appears that the theater occupied the space that’s now numbered 115 E. 2nd.
