The 300-seat Rose Theatre, one of a handful of theatres near the intersection of N. Clark Street and W. Madison Street, opened around 1910, and was owned by the the same man who owned the nearby Morrison Hotel, Harry C. Moir (he also owned the Alcazar Theatre and Boston Theatre, both, like the Rose Theatre, situated near the Morrison Hotel.)

When Moir decided to enlarge the Morrison Hotel in the late-1920’s, several neighboring buildings to the ever-expanding hotel, including the Rose Theatre, and Boston Theatre were demolished.

The Rose was still in operation in March 1929 showing “fight pictures” according to the Chicago Tribune film listings of that time.
