OK....the more I look at it, the more I'm sure it's the same building.
I'm pretty sure it is indeed the same building. The proportions look the same as well as the way the windows go.

Unfortunately this building no longer exists; it's now the site of a surface parking lot. It's interesting to me that what was probably a "legitimate" theater at one time became a burlesque theater; plus the space that was once occupied by a tailor later on became a pawn shop. So within a few decades, that section of Main Street became somewhat seedy. That area apparently has been seedy for a long time. Only within the last decade has gentrification set in. It's still a "transitional" area, though.
