See comments on the Norshore Theatre Paul.

Also, I think the building remained a single auditorium until the 90’s. I went there a few times late 80’s / early 90’s. It looked like they started to twin it, then ran out of money and continued to operate while everything was in shambles. There were holes punched for the second projection booth for instance. It made the Plaza Theatre on Devon look like the Uptown!

The description above for this theatre should be changed. The Adelphi has been demolished so now the Village North is the only movie theatre left in Rogers Park.

Also, a few years ago, there was a proposal to build a new multi-plex across from the CTA’s Howard Street L Stop (Red Line). Anybody know whatever became of that plan?

In the late ‘70s I saw the cult film Rock-n-Roll High School starring the Ramones. As a kid growing up on the westside it was my first time in Rogers Park.

This is an article about the Village North Theater nicknamed the “Ghettoplex”. The article isn’t dated but it appears to be a few years old.

“The Four Hundred” is an old term for the highest of high society. That’s probably what the namers were going for.

Anyone know why it was called the 400?

This cinema was called the 400 up until 1996 when the
village theater purchased it.
