Makes sense to me Joe. The Rose is not listed in 1945. It is listed in 1950 with no seat count given. In 1955 the seating was 600 as I already posted last November.

The opening date of 1941 currently given is wrong. The Rose had recently opened when it was featured in the April 2, 1949, issue of Boxoffice Magazine. The all aluminum pre-fab metal building was built by the Reynolds Metal Company, and adapted for theater use by Fairfield Enterprises Inc., designers and builders. The 600-seat house was built for $60 a seat, compared to a cost of $150 to $200 a seat for conventional theater construction at the time.

I lived in Schiller Park. Went to the Rose often. Saw House On Haunted Hill and Premature Burial there as a teen. Carol Ries
