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.

Broan commented about Clermont Theatre on Jan 17, 2016 at 9:27 am

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.
