Opened as the Keystone Theatre in 1913, this theater was located in the Lakeview neighborhood, on N. Sheridan Road near W. Dakin Street. It was operated by the Essaness circuit in its early years.
In 1935, after an Art Deco remodeling, the theater was renamed the Mode Theatre. Around the mid-to-late-1960’s, the theater was renamed the Teatro Puerto Rico, showing Spanish-language films. In 1969, the theater was renamed again, as the Festival Theatre, which was originally an art house cinema, but by the early-1970’s, had begun to show pornographic films. The Festival Theatre closed in 1983.
The former theater, after housing a grocery store for years, was demolished in early-2005. A new building has been constructed on the site with a bank on the street level and condominiums on the upper floors.
