I think this was later renamed the Emerald. Number was probably 16, and the 1917 map shows this storefront as a feed store.

Reading the local paper, the Royal Theatre was completely destroyed on February 1, 1924. If you’re keeping score, the Royal fire also destroyed the neighboring Shoop Motor Garage, the White Front Garage, the North Side Cafe, and the Green City U.S. Post Office. Flames shot up as high as 150 feet as explosives were in three of the buildings - the two garages and the movie theatre.

If the trade press is correct, George Sommers moved the movie screenings to the existing opera house until a new theatre was created. The new Royal Theatre opened but transitioned names at least twice early in the sound era.
