Significance
This property exhibits minimal original or historic building fabric/features. The original 1916 building was extensively altered when it was adapted to serve as a theater c.1940. At the second floor level portions of Streamline Moderne style horizontal grooved cladding placed between narrow horizontal window openings and coping ornament remain in place although the storefront level and the window sash have been extensively altered. The building appears to lacks sufficient physical integrity to convey architectural and/or historic significance.
