Not to be confused with the Roseland-State, down Michigan Avenue also in the Roseland neighborhood, the Roseland Theatre dates to 1914, and was designed by Henry L. Newhouse, who also designed such Chicago movie theaters such as the Howard and the Metropolitan, and later, with Felix Bernham, the Highland and the McVickers.
The Roseland could seat over 960, and was located in a three-story neoclassical-style structure, which also housed apartments and offices, as well as retail storefronts.
Sometime in the mid-to-late 1930s, the Roseland was remodeled in Art Moderne style, with a new sleek and simplified facade, as well as a neon-lit new marquee. The storefront level of the Roseland Building was also redone in Art Moderne, though the second and third stories' original facade of green-and-cream colored terra-cotta was not altered.
Closed as a movie house for decades, the Roseland is currently being converted into retail space.
