The first theater on this site opened as the Oak Park Theater in 1903, it closed in 1907.
In 1915 it was re-designed (maybe even rebuilt), to the design of and financed by Joseph Lewis. It re-opened as the Victor Theater and remained as this until 1926 when it closed.
It re-opened in 1931 and was known as the New Oak Park Theater. A seating capacity of 484 is given in editions of Film Daily Yearbook. The New Oak Park Theater closed again in 1947.
In 1952 it re-opened as the Guild Theater with a seating capacity now given as 467. A new modern marquee had been installed over the entrance. After years of serving this downtown community it eventually closed and fell into a state of disrepair, remaining vacant for many years.
Re-opened in May 2003 (again named the Guild Theater) by the St. Hope Academy, a non-profit community developement organisation. It now has a mix of live shows, lectures and films in its newly re-furbished 200 seat auditorium.
