Appears to have been demolished. Nearest vintage buildings are in the 100 block of West Main, one block away.

Thanks, Chris. I must have misspelled Washington when I searched for the theater.

Joe, I believe they were two different theatres. They were two blocks apart and the Washington became the Illinois. The Washington did have an airdome though. The Washington/Illinois Theatre building is still standing.

I wonder if this might have been the same house later known as the Washington Theatre and Airdome? It was mentioned in the October 12, 1918, issue of The Moving Picture World, which said: “BELLEVILLE, ILL- Arthur Esberg has taken over the management of Washington Theatre and Airdome.” Belleville also once had an airdome called the Lyric.
