No indication of an auto parts store there now. The front has been renovated and modernized. Looks like it is now a multilevel parking garage. There are windows cut into a side wall so I assume the interior was gutted during the conversion.

It looks to be the Alvarez Condominiums now.

Just added a late 1960 photo, with “High Time” and “The Enemy General” on the marquee. So it was still operating then. They were released in September & October of 1960.

The current street view shows that it has indeed been replaced by the Alvarez Condominiums now, which I believe is a new structure. Since the auditorium roof line is no longer visible. The small building to it’s left in the 1960 photo, still remains today.
