Well this is awesome. In today’s ‘next up in new murals’ we looked at an Acorn on 6th and H St, NE. Thanks to a commenter for sharing some awesome info. The Apollo Theatre was located at the site of H Street Storage near Murry’s grocery store:

Ed. Note: You can see their Phase II plans (across the street) here.
