Broan commented about Clermont Theatre on Jan 17, 2016 at 9:40 am

The earliest Tribune ad I could find was Feb 18, 1914 which spelled it “Clearmont”. By Feb 25, this was corrected to Clermont, the spelling that remained used through 1927.

Clermont Theater Company, Chicago, $10,000; to conduct amusement, motion picture and theater business. Incorporators, Paul G. Hensel, Fred L. Steers and Thomas A. Garibaldi. Dated December 13, 1913, so the theater must have opened in 1914. It disappears from listings around March, 1927.

The Alley building may be coming down in the future to make way for new development.

Broan commented about Covent Theater on Jan 10, 2016 at 2:23 pm

Not first opened, reopened. It first opened in June of that year, as previously mentioned.

In 1928, Balaban & Katz and Jones, Linick, & Shaefer took over the Covent from Lubliner & Trinz (B&K subsidiary) and closed it in order to help the struggling Diversey/Century theater nearby.
