Royal Theater

Opened in 1915 as the Uno Theater. Later renamed Royal Theatre, it made the transition to sound movies, but I’m not sure of its closing date. A bank is now located where this theater once stood.

This item from the February 20, 1915, issue of The American Contractor indicates that some contracts had been let for a movie theater at Madison and Ridgewood Avenues by that date:

“Motion Picture Theater & Store Bldg. (seating 756 & 2 stores): 1 sty. & bas. 52x133. $20M. Madison & Ridgewood avs. Archt. Henry Hradilek, 1001 Illuminating bldg. Owner J. H. Brown, care archt. Brk., stone trim, re. cone. Mas., re. cone. & cement work let to C. N. Griffen Co., 3111 Carnegie av. Struct, steel let to T. H. Brooks Co., 3104 Lakeside av. Ptg. let to Moskopp Bros. & Co., 5706 Broadway.”
I’ve been unable to find any other references to this project, nor have I found any mention of the U-No Theatre in the trade journals, though Cleveland Memory has an undated photo of it. I don’t think we can rule out a possible 1915 opening for this house, even though I haven’t been able to confirm that it did.
