M&R. Fine journalism.
Remodeling & Renaming occurred in May 1931.
Here is a 1915 article about the Windsor Park’s exemplary projection systems.
The name of this theater was the Clermont, not Claremont. The Alley is set to close in coming months. https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20151201/lakeview/alley-closing-after-39-years-after-being-slaughtered-by-construction
I don’t think the Playhouse is open.

Posted a photo. The Vitagraph was a very plain theater, at least on the outside.
This page features ornament from the Julian.
This advertisement for asbestos ceiling treatments shows the Buckingham’s rather plain interior.
This article features a very early photo and description of the Julian, as well as descriptions of the other theaters in the immediate neighborhood in 1911, most of which do not have entries on Cinema Treasures.

George L. Rapp may have helped design the Empress. http://archive.org/stream/movingpicturewor16movi#page/66/mode/2up
Looks like this would have been one of the earliest Rapp & Rapp theaters with a cantilevered balcony.
Possibly converted by Rapp & Rapp. https://books.google.com/books?id=uGxJAQAAMAAJ&pg=PA890&dq=G.l.+rapp+theater&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CBsQ6AEwADgKahUKEwisiKGLqt7IAhUCQSYKHeh8BTE#v=onepage&q=G.l.%20rapp%20theater&f=false
