Coming attractions herald from the Ridge Theatre from March 1942

The Ridge Theater, located at W. 120th Street near S. Lowe Avenue in Chicago’s West Pullman neighborhood, is not to be confused with the former Ridge Theater in the Edgewater neighborhood (which was originally the Ellantee Theater and today houses a hardware store). Any information on this theater would be appreciated.

This opened in 1917 as the Leida Theatre. In 1923 it had a name change to Rainbow Theatre and was re-named the Ridge Theatre in 1936. The Ridge closed in 1951.

Just added a couple photos of a coming attractions herald from March 1942 for the theatre which lists its address as 645 W. 120th Street. Coming attractions herald from the Ridge Theatre from March 1942. Advertising movies from March 14 – March 21, 1942. Double features of Keep ‘em Flying & Moonlight in Hawaii, Smilin’ Through & Small Town Deb. Ending with Sergeant York March 19 – 21. The Ridge may have been connected to the State Theatre, Roseland Theatre and Parkway Theatre as the back of the herald shows the schedule for those nearby theatres.
