The Chateau Theatre, located in the Lake View neighborhood on Broadway near Halsted and Grace Streets, was designed by August C. Willmanns and operated by Albert Fuchs for the Ascher Brothers circuit. The building is shown in a rendering and described as “exceedingly attractive”, which I would agree with. It was in a gabled medieval chateau style. It also was said to include offices, a ballroom, 22 lanes of bowling, and 22 billiards tables, in addition to a garage, and the adjacent hotel. (Chicago Tribune, August 8, 1915).
In 1926, the Aschers' lease was to run out and it was announced that it would go burlesque. In 1930 Essaness acquired it and announced it would be remodeled lobby to screen and recieve a new vertical. It was renamed the Vogue Theatre at this time. It burned in 1958, and was operating until then. The building was demolished a few years later.
