This theatre should not be confused with another former Schoenstadt theatre, the now-shuttered Harper Theatre, which became the Hyde Park 1 & 2 in the early-1990’s.

The Hyde Park Theatre was one of the Schoenstadt’s earlier theatre’s, opening in 1914, and also their last to close, in 1973.

The theatre was demolished long ago.

The drive-in facility for the Hyde Park Bank stands on the former location of the theatre, which we used to call the Hyde Park #2. The last film that I saw there was “The Valachi Papers”, months before it closed.
