The Owl Theatre was opened in 1916, and in early advertisements, billed itself as "the most popular theatre on the South Side". It could seat 944 and originally presented vaudeville and live stage revues in addition to motion pictures.
The Owl Theatre’s house orchestra, led by Clarence M. Jones, was almost as much as a draw as the live acts and movies.
The theatre was also a well-known venue for jazz acts. It lasted into the 1950’s.
The Owl Theatre has since been demolished.
