Royal Theatre, Chicago, IL

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This small theater may or may not still be standing. It was opened in 1910 and closed in 1915. The theater was described as being in a two-story building, but the building at this address appears quite old and has a fairly theatrical looking cornice. The theater may have been demolished recently, as the adjacent property has been in a state of partial demolition or collapse for some time.

I think there were some loft style apartments at the neighboring location up until 2005 or so.
A couple of fires displaced the few who resided or worked there.

The Royal was still in operation as late as 1956, and perhaps longer.
