Located in Manhattan, 50 miles southwest of downtown Chicago. The Little Theatre opened in 1914, and was built by Eugene Hoerrmann. It presented amateur theatre productions and silent movies on weekends.

Eventually converting to sound films and renamed Manhattan Theatre, it was closed in 1940.

The building was taken over by the American Legion in 1949, and they remained in the building until 1981. The building has become vacant.
