| Street View

Located in the Noble Square neighborhood on Milwaukee Avenue near Cortez Street. This theater was housed in a storefront of an 1879 building. The theater itself was opened in 1913 as the Moneta Theater and closed in 1934. It appears to have had a small stage.

It was converted into retail use and was eventually demolished in 2007, and condominiums were built on the site.

From the August 2, 1919 Film Daily:

BOMB THROWING

Follows Row With Union Operators in Chicago

A time bomb placed in front of the Moneta theater, at 1064 Milwaukee ave. Wednesday night exploded and destroyed the front of the building. The motion picture house is owned by Martin Moneta. Three men drove up in an automobile, tossed the bomb in the lobby, and drove away. Labor trouble with the Operators Union is said to have been the cause of the lawlessness. The operator at the Moneta house is not a union man.
