This theater was originally known as the Hamlin Theater and was located close to Garfield Park on W. Madison Street at S. Hamlin Boulevard in the West Garfield Park neighborhood. It opened in 1910 as a vaudeville house with 1,200 seats. It later turned to movies as the primary entertainment. It was closed in 1934.
In 1938, the theater was remodeled in an Art Moderne style and also received a new name, the Alex Theater when it reopened on May 22, 1938 with Claire Trevor in “Walking Down Broadway”. It continued to operate until closure in 1976.
A parking lot is on the site of the former Alex Theater.
