This opened on August 15th, 1937. Its grand opening ad can be found in the photo section.

that’s a beautiful color photo (transparency) of the 1951 Woodlawn theatre because it also includes the streetcar there. In 1966 I took the CTA el to the Jackson Park terminal with my buddy Ernie V.

Wow, how did they manage to convince the CTA to allow their marquee to wrap around the Jackson Park El support beam?
