The Belpark Theatre opened on March 12, 1927 as part of the Lubliner & Trinz circuit. It was located on Cicero Avenue near Belmont Avenue in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood.
This 2,000-plus seat theater was designed by E.P. Steinberg and once contained a 3/17 Barton theater organ. In spring of 1930, the Belpark Theatre was taken over by the Balaban & Katz chain, which operated it for the remainder of its career as a movie house.
The Belpark Theatre closed as a movie theater in the mid-1950’s and after periods of use as a warehouse and later, a banquet facility, the building became a bingo hall, which was closed around 2014. It is slated to become a church.
