Opened as the Brighton Park in 1919, this theater was built for the Schoenstadt circuit by the firm of Levy & Klein, whose other Chicago theaters include the North Side’s Granada and Diversey (later the Century) Theatres. It was named for the neighborhood it was located in and stood on Archer Avenue near Sacramento Avenue.
The Brighton Park Theatre, which did not have a stage and was built specifically for movies, also contained a 2/6 Kimball organ.
The theater was known as the Brighton after the ‘Park’ portion of its name was dropped during the 50s.
After a long life as a popular neighborhood house, it closed its doors in 1991, and in September 2003, was torn down.
