The Egyptian Theatre’s location is now occupied by the City Tavern, a bar and grill. I can’t tell from Google street view if it’s an old building or not. There is a bare brick wall along E. North Street such as the side wall of an auditorium would be, but it looks to be in very good condition and might date from the 1930s or later, nor does the building extend all the way to the end of the property, there being a parking area at the rear.

In the 1922 Film Year Book, the Casino is on a list of theaters “…owned, controlled, operated by, or in which Famous Players-Lasky, Inc., is interested.”
