This photo of White Castle Restaurant #8 shows the Evanston Theatre next door as it appeared in the 1940s (Blue Skies was released in 1946.) The theater front looks to have been remodeled in a Streamline Modern style in the late 1930s or early 1940s.

Architect Joseph G. Steinkamp and his younger brother Bernard F. Steinkamp were the sons of the German-born Cincinnati architect John (Johann) Bernhard Steinkamp. The brothers were active from around 1900 to around 1948.

The January 31, 1914, issue of The Construction Record had this item that must have been about the Evanston Theatre:

“Cincinnati, O — Architects J. G. Steinkamp & Brother, 414 Walnut street, have plans in progress for a one-story brick nickelodeon, to be erected on Montgomery road and Dana avenue, for Andrew Niedenthal, Montgomery road. Cost, $15,000.”
