This is an old photo and the building looks nothing like this today. the only thing left is the Esquire sign the Marquee is gone. Today it looks like the rest of Oak street and you will find Del Frisco's Double Eagle steak house there.

Bill,

Thank you for the update. A sad comparison of the assessor photo and how it is today, though some of the original facade is intact. I'll get a new photo and update this entry, though I wonder if it deserves to remain listed given how much it has been altered.
