Small is an understatement. I’m surprised they fit 172 seats in there. Please also note that we do not yet have a theater listed as now being a carwash, so that would be a first.

The photo is taken off Google maps. An internet search shows the carwash at 2123 W. Division.

From 1924 to 1935 this address comes up in obituary listings in the Chicago Tribune as a funeral home.
