Opened in 1917 as the Parkway and later renamed the Western, this North Lawndale neighborhood theater stood on West 22nd Street (later renamed Cermak Road) at Fairfield Avenue, not far from Douglas Park. By 1923, it had become a dance hall, but a year later, shows up as the New Western Theatre. Finally renamed the West Theatre, it was operated from the 40s at least into the mid-50s as part of the Goodman & Harrison chain.
Today, the building which housed the West Theatre is used as a real estate office. Its elegant terra-cotta decorated facade with an arch over the main entrance is still unmistakably theatrical in appearance.
