An item in the October 7, 1927, issue of Motion Picture News said that I. Brotman was the owner of the Clybourn Theatre. Brotman’s son, Oscar, went on to have a long career in exhibition, operating several notable Chicago theaters.

The Chicago Tribune of October 13, 1915 shows the Clybourn Theater showing “The Chicago Tribune Animated Weekly” among various other Chicago and Midwestern movie theaters. Also, the Tribune shows the address as 1609 instead of 1607 N. Clybourn.
