This early Uptown neighborhood theater opened in 1910 and closed in 1915. It was located on North Broadway between Carmen and Winnemac Avenues. The theater has since been demolished and an office building is now located on the site.

The office building on the site of the old Carmen Theatre was built for AON Insurance. Directly across the street is AON’s parking structure accessed by it’s own crosswalk.
Just North of that used to be a giant restaurant called the Plantation, which is now a bank.

This theater was specifically used by the J.P. Seeburg Company of Chicago to demonstrate the use of one of its photoplayers for silent film accompaniment.
