Old newspaper ads show the address as 2745 W. Cermak. Newspapers have been known to make mistakes.

This theater was initially built for Edward Kounovsky at a cost of $91,000. Before opening, it was to be known as the Fairfield. Kounovsky had built the nearby Douglas in 1910.

The theater as it currently appears. Some ornamental cresting is pretty clearly missing from the roofline above the arch.
