The Sunset Theater was listed in the 1933-34 Dallas City Directory, but not in the 1930 directory.

Last time I was by there the building was housing a garage.

The building may have burned, but I believe it still stands, having a stair-stepped pyramid motif in its street elevation (see street view in map link).
