It was on the site of the old toronto garage where the new flats are being built over the road from the church.

The building to the right is now a hairdressers and further right a flower shop.

I hate to say this but I think the building on the left is Blockbusters now. The brickwork round the window is identical and the airbrick is still in the same place.

According to Noel E Smith, This was originally the Wesleyan Chapel which opened in 1885 before it became the "Picturedrome" which opened in 1911. If you walk down the entry by the side of the shops, you can still see the rear of the original building.
Capt. America is correct.
