The last ad for the Village Theater (as it was later known) I was able to find in the Chicago Tribune Online Archives appeared on September 20, 1978. The films were ERUPTION and CHINA DESADE. Whether they continued to show films without running ads (or no longer running them in the Tribune) after that is anyone’s guess.

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
