The Covent Garden Theater, opened in 1916 for the Lubliner & Trinz circuit, could originally seat well over 2000, and was one of the largest theaters in the Lake View neighborhood of Chicago. It featured vaudeville and stage shows as well as motion pictures. The theater was remodeled in 1934 by the firm of Pereira & Pereira. Around the 1950’s, the “Garden” portion of the theater’s name was dropped.
The theater was later operated by the Balaban & Katz chain.
The theater was part of a complex which also included the Hotel Covent, or Covent Hotel. When the theater was demolished, only the auditorium was razed, replaced by a parking lot. The hotel remains today.
