Built in 1926 for the Marks Brothers circuit, this was one of the largest movie palaces on Chicago’s Far North Side, located in Rogers Park. In November 1929, the theater was acquired by the Balaban & Katz chain. The Granada Theater was originally designed by Edward Eichenbaum (of the firm of Levy & Klein) for both live stage shows and movies, but by the 1940’s, was only showing films. It remained open until the late-1970’s.
The Granada Theater was used for rock concerts sporadically during the early to mid-1980’s, but eventually closed entirely.
It was torn down in 1990, after being stripped of all its remaining decoration. An apartment/retail complex (named for the Granada) was constructed in its place.
