Located in the Garfield Park neighborhood on Crawford Road (later renamed S. Pulaski Road) at W. Lexington Street, near where the Eisenhower Expressway runs through today. The Lexington Theatre was in operation at least from the early-1920’s. It was given a makeover in the summer of 1939 to the plans of architectural firm Rapp & Rapp. It was operating into the early-1950’s. It was last part of the Cooper-Kirsch Theaters chain.

The Kimball organ from this Theatre survives in a Chicago Catholic Church.

During the 40’s this theatre would give away free dinnerware plates (Smith Taylor brand) to the ladies that came to the show on certain nights.
