Research indicates the address was 225 South Jackson St and that the building is not demolished. It seems to have been turned into a cultural center.

this was a theater in a predominantly black neighborhood. says here it closed in 1969, but i think it was actually open a little past that. later, the broad avenue theatre opened and showd many ‘blaxploitation’ movies, presumably for the black citizens.

The Ritz is now a perfoming arts type theatre for the black community.

Per Google the cultural center that was here is “permanently closed”
