Yes Tinseltoes, the Southern Theatre is still standing! Since July 2012, the month before your comment, the theater has been home to the Kevin O'Brien Studio, a textile design center. The upper portion of the façade remains as it was when it was a theater. At street level, a modern front now covers the old theater façade. You can visit it above. Enjoy!
