Opened as the Palm 1 Theatre in 1914 seating 650. The theatre was remodeled in 1930 and renamed the Cozy Theatre. The theatre was located on North Illinois Street and West Wabash Street.

A bit of trivia on the Cozy: on May 14, 1938 it played the movie “Assassin of Youth”, a marijuana drug expose film. The Cozy Theatre closed in 1957. An office building now stands on the site of the theatre.
