The Comus Theatre was opened in 1894. It reopened on April 26, 1918 as the Woodlawn Theatre with a seating capacity given as 2,000, which was overstated. It was a medium-sized theatre in the Chicago neighborhood of the same name, on E. 63rd Street at S. Drexel Avenue. It could seat just under 1,300. The theatre was designed by Henry L. Newhouse.
The Woodlawn Theatre closed in 1926 and was demolished. The Maryland Theatre was built on the site, opening in 1928 by Balaban & Katz. (It has its own page on Cinema Treasures)
