The Logan Square, named for the northwestern Chicago neighborhood it was situated in, opened in 1913. It was originally a vaudeville house, but was soon acquired by the Lubliner & Trinz circuit and converted into a movie theater. It could seat almost 1320. The theater was renamed the Rio in 1934, and renamed the Mars in 1949.
The Logan Square Theater was different from another Logan Square neighborhood movie house, the Logan Theater, which is still open and operating as a quad, and originally was called the Paramount.
The Mars was demolished in 1968. Today, most of the site of the theater is occupied by the parking lot of the nearby Mega Mall shopping center. A portion of the theater property is also now the Blue Line “El” tracks, specifically where the tracks start to go underground at Milwaukee Avenue.
