Here is a listing for a church at 4138 W. North:

Here is a photo taken from Google maps showing the Templo Adventista at 4138 W. North. Looks like the funeral home is now a church.

From The Nickelodeon, August 1, 1910: “F. Breet, Chicago, has been granted a permit to erect a motion picture theater at 4140 North Avenue at a cost of $15,000.”

In an article in the July 1, 1911 issue of Moving Picture World Julius A. Alcock is listed as the owner of the Edna Theater.

The Edna Theatre could be this project noted in the May 21, 1910 issue of The Economist:

William F. Pagels has completed plans for a two story theater, with store, 35x125 feet, to be erected on North avenue, near Forty-first avenue. It will cost $20,000.“
Chicago’s numbered avenues were given names around 1913. The 4100 block has since begun at Karlov Avenue.
