Century Theatre; they had it all.

The Century opened in 1910, the first theater in the Ascher Brothers chain. It originally had seating for 832 and included a balcony. The Century stood on Madison Street at Loomis Street, in the Union Park neighborhood on Chicago’s Near West Side. The theater was in operation until 1966 and was torn down in 1972.

This theater is not to be confused with the Century Theatre in Lakeview, which was originally opened as the Diversey and today houses a shopping center and an art house movie theater.
