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.
