From Google street views (2010) it looks as if this theatre is demolished.

Doesn’t look demolished in that view, and it looks in decent shape. And the address fits perfectly.

I see a building at 2530 (bicycle shop) and a building at 2544-46, but there’s a parking lot in between them. Unless the addresses have been shifted, the Daisy Theatre has been demolished.

The Daisy Theatre was listed in Polk’s 1919 Indianapolis City Directory.

The Daisy Theatre was remodeled in 1938 with plans by architect J. Lloyd Allen of Allen & Kelley (John R. Kelley.) The Drawings and Documents Archive at Ball State University has two sheets of preliminary plans and eight sheets of working drawings of the project.

The Daisy was last known as the Cassell Theatre. Correct address is 2544 W. Michigan Street and the building is still standing.
